Oct. 18 (UPI) -- A British toy company teamed with a design firm to break the Guinness World Record for the longest wooden train track.
The groups built a 2.1-mile-long wooden toy train track at ARUP's Birmingham, England, offices to break the previous record of 1.6 miles. The new record was verified by Guinness.
The companies said it took about three hours to build the track and another hour to push a train along the full length of the track.
