This may be old news to many, but I just heard about it yesterday. BBC Channel 4 is airing a five-part television series, called "The Biggest Little Railway In The World."
Last summer, Dick Strawbridge assmbled a crew of several dozen builders and tasked them with constructing a rail line across Scotland, from Fort William in the west to Inverness in the east.
Oh, and they're doing it in G Scale.
Apparently, no one has ever constructed a real railroad across that rugged terrain, but that fact has not deterred these folks. In fact, it is probably what ignited them.
The line is seventy-three miles long. That's seventy-three actual miles. If the scale is British Gauge One (1:32), that works out to a little over 2,300 scale miles-- about the distance from Chicago to Los Angeles via Omaha, Cheyenne, and Salt Lake City.)
The locomotive appears to be steam-powered rather than electric.
Videos are scarce at this point, but should become easier to find once the show is broadcast. Meanwhile, here's an article about the project:
