At last a little bit of dry weather and I have marked out the circuit for the new line in the garden . This is all very exciting and I hope all goes to plan. I'm sure that with your help it will all go well. The plan is firstly to work out how to post pictures and text on the forum so that it makes sense. The easy bit will be building a garden railway. The plan is for two railways. The first is the main line loops running around the garden to a length of about 125 foot each. The other is a copy of a shunting line I saw hundreds of years ago at Railex which will form the goods/shunting side of the line. I marked the route out today to gain planning approval from the higher powers and she said I may proceed with the scheme. Curves are a modest 10 to 12 foot and the intention is to use the dikitriki construction method of scaffold poles, cable trays and hardibaker boards. Cliff Barker track with super elevation and several prayers to the gods of model railway builders and operators and away we go. It all seems quite straightforward at this point, pushing canes into the lawn and flower beds. To be honest I am a bit worried about how things are going to turn out. Courage and good luck and all will be well.
