The Model Railway Story: From Hornby to Triang and beyond, this documentary explores how the British have been in love with model railways for more than a century.

With unique archive and contributions from modellers such as Pete Waterman, this is a celebration of the joys of miniaturisation. Just don’t call them toy trains.
