Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"
 



"Sir Rod Stewart is a rock star with a super interesting hobby ... building model railways.

Rod says he's spent the past 23 years creating an imaginary U.S. city in the attic of his Los Angeles mansion, complete with intricate details and over 100 feet of railroad tracks. Who knew that's what he was up to when he wasn't making music or performing live?!?

The British rocker finally revealed his secret passion in an interview with Railway Modeller magazine, telling the outlet he even took his hobby on tour, working on skyscrapers and other scenery in extra hotel rooms specifically reserved for his construction project.

Rod says he prefers creating structures and scenery as opposed to laying down railroad ... and his whimsical town features warehouses, high-rises, mills and different landscapes.

The railway infrastructure is pretty detailed too ... there's rail stations, tunnels, bridges and, of course, tracks. There's even cars and ships." (More)

On the trails
 



And tucked inside one of the buildings is a bathroom with a tiny bald figure sitting on the toilet, hands raised to the sky in despair. His name is Phil, Stewart explains, and he can't wipe his own ass much less build an impressive train set.

Pretty damn impressive, joking aside.
