Re: Garden Railway Woes

My relatively extensive outdoor railway (Gscalenut on You-tube) was raised approximately 600 mm. It keeps the track clear of the vegetation, however, a downside is stepping over it. Not so bad with a single track but dual rail would perhaps need a sort of stile arrangement. I lost count of the numb...

Re: Garden Railway Woes

This is an old photograph Chris, but we do plan to raise the track, not sure how much though and re-organise the garden but not sure yet what we (I really mean Chris, although I will help) intends to do. The problem is I am not getting any younger and have to consider not least bending and general g...

Re: Garden Railway Woes

My track is G, scale 1:22.50, gauge 45mm, approximately 3½ inches and laid on concrete. I am not sure yet how we will doing it but the pipe definitely gives food for thought.
