Maybe it's just in the model shops (and toy shops) where I live but it's just as easy (if not easier) to buy set track than flexi track.

Metal wheels are so much better than plastic :)

Any pics of your "workshop"?


Here's a glimpse of my safe haven.

Just goes to show how natural light brings the whole thing to life- try getting the same effect with light bulbs and see how hard it is

My garden railway is up and running but as yet no scenery as still in the build stage. Phase one complete, now awaiting timber to build phase two so that I can again start to lay the permenant way

Dissmantled mine today as it was not level in so many places so looks like the job for this summer is to get it at ground level and get the rockery/tunnel built and the pond my bridge.

set track and flexi track are both as easy to buy but flexi track can be more usefull and less expensive to use then buying loads of little bits of set track lol.
