A Holiday Tradition

Eliot and I went to Aventura Mall today to see the holiday model train exhibition. It was awesome. We thought it was the ultimate until we learned that Rocker Rod Stewart owns a detailed 124ft long x 23ft wide model train set which features an American city in the 1940s. The model contains hundreds of buildings, from trackside switchman shanties to vast factories and skyscrapers.

Stewart has been building his train set for the last 26 years. He claims this is a wonderful at home hobby when you have to be on the road so much.

Here is a UK story on Rod’s train set.
