The Great Model Railway Challenge

James Richardson and Tim Shaw lift the lid on a globally popular hobby, beloved by legions of unsung artists who have been quietly building tiny universes for the littlest of locomotives in attics and sheds for decades. Here, teams of the UK's most talented railway modellers compete in a series of knockout heats to create jaw-dropping miniature masterpieces against the clock. The first heat sees Strangers on a Model Train, Team Porthcawl and Missenden Modellers compete. The judges are editor of Railway Modeller Steve Flint and renowned modeller and vlogger Kathy Millat.
