James May Toy Stories Tarka Trail

A video has been posted onto You Tube of TV presenter James May during the filming of his Toy Stories programme in which he attempted to recreate the railway link between Barnstaple and Bideford along what is now the Tarka Trail using Hornby scale railways models.

Over 400 volunteers helped out including locals, groups, railway enthusiasts and model enthusiasts. Despite the majority of the journey being on a flat tarmacked surface, there was plenty of obstacles to overcome between the two North Devon towns.
