Jools Holland has revealed the incredible model railway he spent a decade building, because why not?

This train truly is bound for glory.

The musician and TV presenter has revealed that he loves getting a bit of peace and quiet by hiding away to watch the trains with a glass of wine.

Honestly, we dont blame him.

Featuring landmarks from all over the world, its a masterpiece – and hes not planning on stopping his work on it any time soon.

Luckily enough, Jools, most well-known for his show Later With…Jools Holland, loves spending time on his own in his Kent mansion to work on the project.

The 60-year-old told the Railway Modeller magazine: There isnt a very good phone signal in there!

To my mind a model of a real place creates a personal take on history. Photographs can provide the stimulus but cannot evoke that special atmosphere in a way that models can.

I had a modest train set in the corner of a small room in a small house as a young boy. I have always loved trains, he recalled.

This gave me the great excuse to enjoy creating architectural capriccios, a working Motorway network, underground rail connections and much more.

The peace and quiet of the project is clearly a bit of a change from his musical career, as he embarked on a sell-out tour of 33 dates and released his new album As You See Me Now last year.

Were exhausted just thinking about it – can we get in on the calming model trains?
