Track Record?- 'Best railway model ever built' is getting train buffs all steamed up.<br />
<br />
A stunning model train described as 'one of the best ever built' could break a world record when it goes under the hammer.<br />
<br />
The maroon coloured scaled down version of the 'Duchess of Buccleuch' is one of just two of that model made by legendary train builder Harry Powell.<br />
<br />
Its sister model sold for a world record £183,000 seven years ago - and it is hoped this one could top that sum.<br />
<br />
The 10ft model took Powell, who is regarded as the 'Rembrandt of model train making', 10 years and 18,000 hours to build.
