At 8.00am on Wednesday July 21st, Tomy’s technical assembly team will reveal their world record attempt – a Tomica train track built to over three metres tall.

The team will be working through the night to ensure the model is ready for The Gadget Show’s Jason Bradbury to place the final piece.

Tomica is celebrating its 40th anniversary in its native Japan, and Tomy UK chose the occasion to display the range to the UK.

Tomy will once again be using the services of its long-term partners in Royal British Legion Industries, who in the past have built many models and displays for the toy industry including displays in Harrods windows.

Royal British Legion Industries is the sister charity to the Royal British Legion, and works to help ex-servicemen and disabled people into work.

Ruth Williams, senior brand manager for Tomy UK, said: “We are very excited to be showing Tomica to all the commuters at St Pancras International. Our team will be working through the night on the world record attempt and we’re confident that it will look incredible.

"The display will be in place all day, so anyone passing through St Pancras will be able to come along and take a look.”
