Garden railway plans and possibilities
I have read magazines and books about garden railways for more years than I care to recall. I have thought about ideas but never done anything about it. Now seems a time to remedy that. The emphasis will be as much upon the buildings and folk as upon the trains. Fulfilling my model village, railway, miniature landscaping interests in one. The idea is to do something not too intrusive but future plans may change that. Just a single track with halts for the present along with battery powered train. Low key but engaging. The track will run along the breeze block walling not on the ground. It will be easier to see and involve less bending and kneeling amidst plants. Here are my photos and notebook jottings
A view from indoors. As this area of the garden has a beach theme the terminus here will be at an imaginary village on the coast.
My daughter held the tape measure for me to enable me to add measurements to this rough plan.
Horribly annotated picture that hopefully makes my simple plan a little more obvious. I will mull things over in the coming days.
