The fourth episode of ‘The Great Model Railway Challenge’ (Friday 26th October 2018) challenged the three teams – The Railway Children, The Fawley Flyers and The Diesel Dynamos – to create a layout based upon this week’s theme of ‘Fire and Ice’. The teams had three days to build their layouts before being judged by Steve Flint and Kathy Millatt, with one team winning a place in the grand final.
