Team captain for The Shunter Guys In association with the CH5 TV series –   The Great Model Railway Challenge


New to Channel 5 is the Great Model Railway Challenge, this being a new concept TV show that is about Railway Modelling and creativity.

The show has a plethora of judges to pin point everyone’s modelling skills and to see which of the 15 teams will win them over creating the ultimate railway layout build within just 24 hours… Yes that’s correct and one hell of a task for all involved.

I was lucky to be part of this year’s show as the team captain for The Shunter Guys.

Our team is was six guys from YouTube from all over the UK and Italy so getting everyone together on video calls to plan our military operation was super challenging to say the least.

The show is due to air around November 2018









The first show will air on Friday 28th September 2018 on Channel 5 at 8:00pm UK GMT.
