Forced Changes To My Garden Track

For quite some time now for varying reasons I have not been able to cut the grass in the back and weeds and grass doing what they do had completely taken over the back hiding any signs of track.


Making The Railway Tunnel

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. 


Making The Truss Bridge

If you have read the article The Garden Canal in this section you will know that we had put a river in the garden.  This meant that the track would cross the river near the base of the waterfall so a bridge was needed.

This is a pictorial account of how we made the the Truss Bridge. 



Multi Train System Control

After laying the track and using a simple analogue controls system we decided to change to an LGB Multi Train System (MTS). So that we could run with full control more than one loco at once including the points (turnouts).  To do this we had to install control chips in the locos that didn’t already have them fitted, this also gave us the added control through the system of steam, lights and sound through the chips.
