On Channel Four tonight at 8pm is the start of a new series of five programmes.

The Biggest Little Railway in the World attempts to build the longest model railway ever made, 71 miles across the heart of Scotland, from Fort William to Inverness.

The Radio Times on-line mentions, 'Its a route the Victorians never managed with full-size trains, but (Dick) Strawbridge believes it can be done with an 'O' gauge model engine called the Silver Lady and the sometimes techy help of 50 volunteers - his "navvies". They camp along the route and construct sections in teams - at one point building and impressive miniature bridge across a canal lock'.

There is a Severn Valley connection to what is going on, refer to http://www.svr.co.uk/NewsItem.aspx?a=822
