Seldom will you find a TV show equal to last year’s BBC toy extravaganza, James May’s Toy Stories where May takes some of Britain’s most-loved toys on a madcap adventure. You need to see them to believe how far one man will go to encourage children out of bedrooms and away from play-stations.
The series consisted of six fantastic episodes, featuring extraordinary feats of engineering to put generations of British families at the heart of some pretty ludicrous undertakings producing an unusual form of family entertainment.
I was recently introduced to May through an audio DVD about May’s efforts to produce a 10-mile run of a Hornby 1:76.2 scale track linking Barnstaple to Bideford with the world's longest model train set.
I was recently introduced to another unusual scale model train made entirely of Lego Blocks. These are actually moving S Scale trains, more than one can be operated on a layout--in fact there is a lot of modeling you can do with Lego Blocks.
