Hi chaps I'm new to this forum but an old hand in others. It's nice to see someone else getting out into the garden with their railways.. I have had an 00 gauge garden layout now since late 2002 and have gradually added & improved it over the years. The latest project is digitalising the layout with DCC which is progressing well if a little slowly. Constructed in 2002/3 the Bambrough & Mallenbourne railway has seen quite a few changes in its time and some parts of the layour have "blended" in with the rest of the garden well.

Without wishing to blow my trumpet too loud I have posted a few vids of it on youTube and have put a link to one of them in this thread. Have a look and see for yourself.

Thanks chaps.. yes I have added quite a few vids since January.. I started off by just putting clips on, until I had a play with windows movie maker he he. I think I have had as much fun doing the videos as I have running trains. I need a better camera really the one I have been using is just a digital still camera using the short video recording function. My funds are dedicated to digitalising the layout at the moment so the camera will have to wait.

What type of track do you use? Setrack or flexi?

Havng your own garden where permission is not needed is very useful :wink: mind you It's taken 52 years of my life to achieve it!

Your right about the no permission bit Metadyneman as I also only had to ask myself for permission to have a garden railway. The answer was an unequivocal YES. :D
