Try using alignment dowels, I use them for my trapdoor to the loft and it has vastly improved running performance.

The Blue Line garden railway is no more. Sadly the weather these last few summers has finally defeated me. I am however continuing work on my colliery layout.

What happened, did the wood rot or was it too difficult to keep the track clean?

Basically , it was the weather, constant rain , the wood stood up really well and the track also, but the last two summers brought it home to me that a garden railway in this part of the UK (South Wales) is not practicable.
