IT IS ONE thing taking your average model railway layout to an exhibition for a weekend, but when it requires two articulated lorries and weighs over 5tons and consists of more than 90 baseboards it is a whole different challenge. But Simon George and the Britain's Biggest Model Railway team have done just that by taking the mind-bending 200ft x 50ft 'O' gauge model of Heaton Lodge Junction out for its first two week long public event in Wakefield.
