In 2009, James May’s Toy Stories went on a quest to show what is possible with old-fashioned toys by using them on a scale never seen before. Five toys were successful but one failed – model trains. In this special, James May seeks redemption.
The Great Train Race is all about James and his team revisiting the doomed challenge and make another attempt at building the longest ever model railway track – nearly ten miles long! Linking two Devon towns, Barnstaple and Bideford, the last attempt saw no trains reach their destination. Will James and his trains, especially the Flying Scotsman, be successful this time round?
