3. Rod Stewart – Model Trains
Life has been good with Rod Stewart.
At an age when many count the pennies from the retirement fund, Rod has time to pursuit the hobbies his overwhelming career rarely allowed.
The 71-year-old known in the celeb world as “the Mod” rode the “Downtown Train,” but only for fun. Building model trains and mock-ups of urban buildings has been a well-regarded secret of his.
The public first laid eyes on Stewart’s creations when photos of his setup appeared in Model Railroader Magazine. The singer named his most prized cardboard work “Grand Street and Three Rivers Railroad.”
What is most amazing about Rod Stewart and his hobby is that their relationship started while the artist was touring. Rod spent many sleepless nights in hotels around the world assembling the small vehicles. Apparently, this was his way to channel stress out.
Although less sophisticated, the upcoming hobbies of celebs will make you crave for free time to take on one yourself.
