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.
