James May on Toy Trains

Top Gear’s James May presented a program about his Top Toys, and this is the segment on the number 1 toy – the train set. We also get a glimpse of Pete Waterman’s O Gauge layout. This all too brief video gives a nice introduction to the Hornby and Triang model railways of the UK as well as the hobby of train collecting. Train collecting is much different from building model railroads because the purest collector never runs his trains. In fact, in their best case scenario the toys are never even removed from the box.
