The Model Train Collector
There are model train enthusiasts, and then there is Rod Stewart. The 66-year-old rocker, who’s been a train hobbyist for 20 years, even insists on a backstage area where he can set up tracks before concerts. His crowning achievement is a complete replica of New York's Grand Central Station in his house, comprised of 100 feet of track, dozens of locomotives and carriages, skyscrapers and hundreds of passengers in 1940s dress. The set was featured on the cover of Model Railroader – an honor he once said would “mean more to me than the cover of Rolling Stone.” —Jeff Royer
