There’s just something incredibly appealing about model trains and railway tracks, so the news of an attempt to build the world’s longest model railway seems, ironically, pretty big.

A Channel 4 programme on the attempt to build the model 71 miles along the Great Glen Way in Scotland will air on Sunday January 7 at 8pm.

The coast-to-coast route is apparently an unfulfilled dream of Victorian engineers – will the current generation get a chance to see it come true?

Perhaps if it’s a success it could complete tiny deliveries across Scotland in 2018 – now wouldn’t that be just lovely?
