When I lived in Dorking (bottom of Deepdene Vale) nearly 50 years ago, I am confident my dad would not have tolerated my trains in his garden! After visitors arrived at the weekend with a bagful of old Tri-ang locos, we dusted them off and got them running, although old, coarse wheels don't go too well with Peco points.
Here are a couple of shots of the latest engine to arrive on the DGR - a Southern N Class 2-6-0. Today I was lucky enough to discover some seasonal photos taken in the Fraser River Canyon, British Columbia, in the 1960s. Garden railway, and check out Garden railway on Wikipedia, Youtube, Google News, Google Books, and Twitter on Digplanet. This article may need to be rewritten entirely to comply with Wikipedia's quality standards. A garden railroad or garden railway (Railroad in the US, railway elsewhere) is a model railway system set up outdoors in a garden.
At its most basic level, it works just like an indoor railway, including turnouts and turntables.
Plants are usually an integral part of a garden railway, and dwarf varieties along with pruning are often used to keep them in proper proportion.
Buildings are also often used in a garden railway, though they too must be constructed to withstand the weather. Other geographic features are used, such as a small pond to represent a lake, rocks for boulders, or tunnels through "mountains" or under stairways. A frequent theme is the railway in an idealised urban or rural environment, so it is often found in the context of a model village.
Because these layouts are often so unique, they are frequently given names by their owners, just like a real railroad.
In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory features an extensive Garden Railway display put on with the cooperation of many Wisconsin Model Railroad club members. A notable example in England is Bekonscot which is the oldest model village in the world and has an extensive railway running through a mythical 1930s England. Backyard railroad a€” outdoor railways that are large enough to ride on and often cover many acres.
One question why are O gauge loco's so so expensive now do they not make any poor mans ready to run versions anymore? Ta for the comment on North Star, I'm planning to do something very similar with the Heljan 7mm Duff when I get one next month.
In between it was G scale, but just a single track oval (so I didnt bother photographing that).
Great layout always been a fan of this layout I also have a 4CEP and think its a beautiful unit the lights are also mighty impressive keep up the good workThanks for that. Not to be outdone by several garden railway modellers who have braved the elements to get some photographs and video action of their layouts during the recent snow, today I put on a couple of extra layers and went out into the garden with a handbrush to clear away the snow from the tracks.


However my Father is building a 3 rail layout in his railway room that will once again echo to the sounds of tinplate, if we can only decide and source what controllers to use as time has been called for safety reasons of deteriorating insulation on the original A3s, C3s, T1s and A2s. They feature a pair of Canadian National F7As in zebra stripe livery with the 'wet noodle' logo, hauling a short freight train. While G is the most popular scale for garden railroads, 16 mm scale has a dedicated and growing following especially in the UK.
However, special considerations must be taken for everything from sunlight and water to dirt and leaves, and even wildlife. They can also use Digital Command Control or other similar systems, though dirty outdoor track can cause less of a problem with signal than with simple DC power. Some go so far as to use bonsai techniques, though this can be very time-consuming for large areas.
Tunnels can be a particular challenge, because everything from cats to raccoons and more like to hide in them, particularly to get out of the rain or heat, sometimes even to sleep, nest, or hibernate. Some garden railways work opposite to the model village style and opt more for a railway in the garden, where the railways runs amongst normal plants, not in scale with the railway. Members often invite others over for social gatherings, as well as rotating club meetings around each month.
The "Domes" as they are known locally, schedules the indoor Garden Railway Show during the cold winter months. This is well known to be one of the largest, and oldest, garden railways in the UK open to the public.
All these scales would more correctly fall under the name of G gauge, referencing the width of the track, rather than G scale, as there are so many scales now claiming to be G. It's all much the same as it was a couple of months ago apart from several new additions to the fleet, but more of all those later. It's the interaction with other members and other model railway enthusiasts that helps to keep the enthusiasm going for me. Fortunately the accumulated snow was still nice and soft and brushed away quite easily which was more than I could say for the piles of bird droppings which had set like concrete. It's not really the snow but the frozen droplets of water which adhere to the rails that cause the most problems. I have been disappointed with the sound quality of this A4 since I first opened the packaging and placed the loco on a length of track and I was hoping that once taken outdoors it might change my mind. Model locomotives in this scale are often live steam scale models of British narrow gauge prototypes. The distance covered also means that electrical resistance in and between sections is much higher, and electrical power will tend to drop off at the far end.
The steam can be generated from a variety of sources, ranging from messy solid pellet (i.e. The loco shed is a common place to store a locomotive (or the whole train) when not in use.
A derailment inside a tunnel can also be permanent if careful planning is not done to ensure that it can be reached by access panels (trapdoors) or at arm's length from either end.


These sort of railway designs allow for large scale planting and many gardeners have the railway as a secondary hobby to gardening. A large setup was on public display at the Atlanta Botanical Garden during the summer and early fall of 2005, including replicas of downtown Atlanta skyscrapers made from wood, bark, and other natural materials.
It has become one of the most popular displays each year and one of the largest temporary Garden Railway displays in the Midwest.
This gauge, but not the scale, is derived from the standard gauge 'Gauge 1' in UK (originally using a scale of 10mm to 1 foot). As it happened, although the snow has been clearing fast over the past 2 days, almost the whole layout is covered in a thick layer of frozen ice which is above rail top level in places and I didn't fancy tackling that lot. In addition 1:29 is exactly three times the size of HO scale making it easier to enlarge existing scale model drawings for consumer construction of accessories and scratch-built engines and rolling stock. Damp track and track base don't pose any real problems with running capabilities but I have found that the wet conditions make it almost impossible to get around the garden without ending up with a couple of inches of mud stuck to the bottom of your footwear. I still have a temporary DC connection to the track after yesterdays 4CEP action and so I took the opportunity to give a run to a Bachmann Royal Scot that I have decided no longer has a place on the Selby Garden Railway due to the fact that I have two of them. I really enjoy seeing other people's photos and videos no matter what their level of ability.
They are smaller than the Backyard railroad, or what is commonly called a miniature railway, and would not provide a ride-on facility, being intended instead as a display railway. In the end I coupled them both together for a spot of double-heading and gave both of them a run out. It has been filmed with the loco at its default factory settings and cycles through the entire 28 step speed cycle.
Smaller scales and gauges are used in the garden, but in general garden railway is used to refer to the medium scale sizes which would be impractical to use indoors. Early releases in this scale were more toy like, complete with brass railings and other decorations.
The break has allowed me the chance to take stock (pardon the pun) and look ahead to next year. I also gave a run to my other Bachmann 4-CEP in early BR green livery without yellow warning panels whilst from the storage cupboard I grabbed hold of a Bachmann class 158 which I've had for some time and never yet run. Since that time there has been a steady move toward more and more realism with recent releases in live steam radio controlled engines. I got footage of all three in action and those three videos are currently in the process of being uploaded to my Youtube account.
1:29 is predominantly American mainline although some locomotives and rolling stock are made for the European market. I have also had to temporarily wire for normal DC running on one line only as I have yet to fit DCC chips to these CEP sets.

    There, HO scale is specifically three.5mm to the rescue, before he set.
