Bigjigs attempt Guinness World Record

Published on: 26th June 2012

Bigjigs Toys will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Wooden Toy Train Track at The Historic Chatham Dockyard on the 26th July 2012.

The Bigjigs Toys team will be using over 10,000 pieces of Bigjigs Rail track in their attempt. The current record stands at just over 1,650 metres, with Bigjigs Toys attempting to reach 2,012 metres.

Spectators are invited to cheer on the Bigjigs Toys team from 10am onwards free of charge. Members of the public can be a part of the challenge by sponsoring pieces of the track for just £1 each. All proceeds will be split equally between Chatham Dockyard Locomotive Restoration Fun, and Demelza House Children’s Charity.

Liz Ireland, director of Bigjigs Toys, said: “Bigjigs Rail is one of the leading wooden train track systems in Europe, and breaking a Guinness World Record using our own products is a great way to get people excited about Bigjigs Rail. We are also raising money for two very worthy causes.”
