Rod Stewart's model railway's been finally revealed! To some of you that will not make sense. How come a rocker is floating the headline other than music? Spoiler: he's always had another talent which he has just rarely unleashed.

Get ready to get your jaw dropped low!

The raspy-voiced icon has been collecting miniature trains for decades now. He even took the pieces on tours and joined the tracks in his dressing room. Before kicking off the concert, Stewart jogged his talent this way. It sounds like pure passion!

Moreover, he's actually good at it. Rod once built an astounding replica of NYC's Central Station. It later graced the cover of Model Railroader Magazine.

Witness the finished glory!

The entire 3rd floor of Rod's Beverly Hills mansion is a layout for his 124ft long and 23ft wide railway model. He began building the magnificent structure in 1993. The rockstar has done 90% of it himself. He admitted to DailyMail UK, electrical works and wiring aren't much of his forte.

The 74-year-old spent 26 years in the making of this masterpiece. It depicts an American city and its industrial lands in the 1940s. His minute artwork features hundreds of buildings, from trackside switchman cabins to enormous factories and high-rises. Rod says:

It's the landscape I like. Attention to detail, extreme detail, is paramount. There shouldn't be any unsightly gaps or pavements that are too clean.

People are in awe of his brilliance

@Mark Blankenship:

I’m always jealous of people who can do stuff like this. I wish I had the kind of skills to do something like it. Amazing work.

@Susan Pamela Winter:

I love Rod in his autobiography he says he takes model making equipment with him when he is on tour to while away the hours between shows

@Wayne R Keirl:

That is astonishingly awesome!

@Joanne Ruggieri Kilgallen:

So cool! What an awesome hobby to keep working at while on tour! He’s an artist in many ways!

It's truly inspiring, isn't it? Rod has shown us that art takes time, effort, talent and yes, money. But, in the end, it's worth it all. Share this and let us know how you feel about his decades-long commitment to a hobby.
