The Garden Railway - 2021 (Part 2)

Following on from July 2001 progress has been made to the point where I can now run trains.

I have also done a bit of work on the locks, but not enough yet to fill them with water.  The bad weather has held me up with this, I need dry weather to give 3 coats of G4 special paint to line the canal and locks.  This will possibly have to wait now until spring.

To continue with what has been done...........

The Garden Railway - 2019

2018 For quite some time for varying reasons I had not been able to cut the grass, weeds and grass doing what they do, had completely taken over the garden hiding any signs of track. On the 10th October 2018 I decided that with it being such a nice day I would venture out and cut the grass.

 All was going well until my hover mower started jumping around and making a horrible grinding sound, yes you've guessed it, some of the track had been damaged. On the bright side the blade being made of hardened steel was undamaged.

This article is a photographic record of the re-building of our tunnel to nowhere. The original tunnel suffered deterioration and so a re-build was necessary.


Why a tunnel to nowhere, please read on.
