Attempt to run a model train 10 miles

2020-01-19 - Paul Almquist

I ran across a fun video series made for BBC which aired in 2009-2014 called James May's Toy Stories. It was recently released on YouTube. May is a train fan and wanted to try a super sized train challenge: Run a model train (OO scale) from Barstaple to Bideford, England, a distance of 10 miles, real miles not scale miles. Did he succeed? Watch the video.
