TOMY World’s Tallest Toy Train Track for Guinness World Records with Chuggington StackTrack

Chuggington StackTrack is a durable die-cast railway system that enables kids to achieve elevation in toy train play. TOMY will be constructing a larger-than-life toy train layout in an attempt to set the record for World’s Tallest Toy Train Track.

The public is invited to join the excitement, which will be a featured part of the Grand Centennial Parade of Trains in Vanderbilt Hall in New York City’s Grand Central Terminal. TOMY’s Master Builder, Jason Moreno, will be on site constructing the sky-high layout beginning at 10:00 a.m. until the 1:00 p.m. world record attempt is officially completed.

In order to set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for World’s Tallest Toy Train Track, Moreno and his helpers must construct a towering layout utilizing the Chuggington StackTrack die-cast railway track that meets or exceeds 9 feet 8 inches in height, and a commercially available Chuggington StackTrack die-cast railway train must then travel from the top of the track all the way down to the bottom.

A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS Adjudicator will be on site to authenticate the record-setting event and, if the effort is successful, to present a certificate that officially proclaims TOMY as the world record holder.

Families and kids of all ages are invited to participate in the event, which is free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Attendees may also visit the Chuggington areas in the Kids Junction, which will feature fun train activities, games, giveaways, and entertainment. Entertainment will include Radio Disney AM 1560, part of the #1 radio network for kids, tweens and families, who’ll be there from 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. providing interactive entertainment and prizes.

An extraordinary assembly of historic train cars spanning the heyday of luxury rail travel, as well
as the latest in railroad technology, will be on display together for the first time at the free and
family-friendly “Grand Centennial Parade of Trains” weekend, which is part of Grand Central
Terminal’s ongoing Centennial celebration. To learn more visit
