Top Gear’s James May tried for the second time to run his HO scale steam loco 9.1 real miles, this time in a race against Miniature Wunderland of Hamburg.  Looks like we’ll have to wait until fall to see who really won.

  • Chris J. Paxton says:

    The James May event originally was part of a BBC series filmed in 2009, called James May’s Toy Stories and was featured in Episode 6, Hornby. In that show they were trying to recreate a 10 mile run from Barnstaple to Bideford. Rain, dirt and vandals all contributed to mechanical failure and he fell short of going the distance. I didn’t realize they were going to do a second attempt at the record. Glad it finally worked.

  • admin says:

    Thanks for the Clarification.

    I’d heard bits of that, but you’ve tied it nicely up. Somebody must have bought the shoot, so I wonder if there’s another Toy Story in the works?

    Thanks,
    Neil
