Rod Stewart’s Huge Model Railroad Reach

As most model train fans already know, Rocker Rod Stewart has a pretty awesome train layout that was well covered in the recent issue of Model Railroader magazine. Rod has suggested that being a feature in the magazine was a personal high point for him.

What Rod may not know is just how big an impact that article has had, far beyond the magazines actual publication itself.

I’ve been monitoring the news wires  extensively as we’ve started our current news feed this month and I have to say that dozens, if not hundreds of newspapers and online blogs have referenced that article over the past few weeks.

So while Model Railroader magazine may ‘preach to the converted’, having Rod Stewart on board has been a major publicity boost for the whole Model Railroading hobby.

Thanks Rod!

    He should be invited to an NMRA convention as guest speaker at the main banquet, and perhaps and could sing a song or two from his Great American Songbook releases.
