For the record

Folkestone family business, Bigjigs Toys Ltd, celebrates a huge win as they take home the Guinness World Record for the Longest Wooden Train Track.

Bigjigs Toys collaborated with ARUP, an engineering and design company to take back the record Bigjigs Toys had held previously in 2012. 

This record-breaking attempt beat the current record of 2,607.15 m with a huge distance of 3395.8 meters.. The track took an extensive team of excited rail engineers and volunteers 3 hours to lay and a further hour to push a train along the track to verify the distance.

This world record attempt forms part of ARUP's 50th-anniversary celebrations. With huge engineering projects such as HS1 to their name, a collaboration with Bigjigs Toys for the Longest Wooden Train Track was a great way to put their engineering skills to the test!

Bigjigs Toys are celebrating the achievement with a limited edition engraved track piece from the record attempt.
