That should work But since they will be in dirt I would theat them with a sealent and use water proof glue with the pin nailer. In the above photo you can see three of the four retaining walls for Rosebud Falls City Park, supporting the rails for the trolley up to the top of the falls.
Anyway, I then found out that a fellow modeller in Sydney, Australia had done it more or less simular to my efforts.
Why am I saying all this you ask, well, with all the negatives I heard its amazing that because of the high cost of copper etc one large model rail supplier is now, or going to, produce new rail in guess what? So, if your just starting with your g scale, or even O gauge train in the garden and cant afford the top ready made track and are prepared for a little hard graft, dont be put off by all the negative comments, I suppose mainly by people that have not actually tried it. Even in the very intense Arizona sun, there seems to be no more expansion or contraction from differences in temperature than with brass rail. Your aluminum expands more than other rail, but proper tracklaying can handle expansion and contraction. No one has mislead you, it's that problems with aluminum track IN GENERAL are greater than other types. Different environments can make something possible where the same installation is impossible somewhere else.
To expand on Greg's comment, I live about 17~18 miles inland from Greg, and about 300 feet farther above sea level. To the best of my knowledge there have been many manufacturers of aluminum rail over the years.
Other comments from others relate to expansion, corrosion, even fires caused by aluminium . I like the comment about many aluminium fittings are used in rigging or other fittings on boats, they even make dinghies out of the stuff, and they don’t exactly disintergrate when touching launched at the beech.
The reason I have taken this tack is that for years many people have said it wont work, for numerous reasons and I believe many would have been put off by those comments. Some years ago my web page was put together to assist those, in the same position as myself ( cant afford to purchase the made up rail so make your own) No advertising on the web, solely at my expense to assist in helping others to partake in the hobby.
Other people have done the same as myself, and posted comments long ago, but they also gave up posting comments due to the constant negative feedback. Well, the last straw is because of costs of brass, copper, stainless steel  has skyrocketed all of a sudden a major track making firm is touting aluminuim G scale track like its the best thing since sliced bread. Finally, as more proof, as we live in a wondrous world of marvels, and Google Earth, send me an email and I can forward you the co ordinates to see ( vaguely) my track from outer space. To all those out there, like myself, that are willing to pass on the knowledge based on practicable advice and experience good on you, keep it up. Keep on having fun, its only a hobby and it doesn’t have to have a brand name to be enjoyed.
So, how do the real full size railroads handle expansion and contraction since most rail is continuous welded and temps run from 20 below to 120 above? No IRB, they don't use rail joints except very rarely and they are not there for expansion reasons.

FYI I have taken the advice of all those who gave so freely and finally put pickax to sod this weekend, trenching out the bed for the half hollow tile retaining walls for the garden. Test fit some track to make sure we could actually turn the trains around at each end of the garden.
Because i had not even thought about leveling, I am pushing my estimated fill date back to late July or early August.
As for photographs, there are a great many free cloud storage sites to put your photo and link them here.
The form is a bit less straight than I hoped it would be, reflecting my lack of skill and the excite if dubiously useful help from my work crew, but the foundation is laid. In the meantime, the concrete has brought family and friends on board, as the whole thing is more than a dirty gash in the yard. I keep all the private stuff on OneDrive, used to have it on Google drive until my daughter wanted me to join google plus so she could talk to me. My father-in-law asked for piece of track and rolling stock so he can start plotting bridges and buildings. Just a quick update, we did decide to get professional help to get the garden filled and tamped. On the fun side, we will be breaking out all the trains and track for their annual run around the Christmas tree and off into the yard this weekend! Lots of info available, but down under brass or stainless steel track was far too expensive so had to find an alternative. For something that so many said would not work, watch the short video, look at the picture galleries.
Tried weed mat but that was a silly idea as the runners of the weeds go for some distances under the weed mat and pop up down the track. Sure, everything in its place but I firmly believe the negatives have been exaggerated and have put people off.
But time and time again people have come back and said “they have researched on the forums and it wont work.
Its been down now for 7 years, has not fallen apart, has not rotted away, has not been eaten and best of all trains actually move on it!.


It used to be all you could see was the great wall of China, and Great Barrier reef, but now it includes outside railways. Nice big chunks of aluminum for rails, nowhere near as fragile or thin as scale rail of aluminum.
Besides, how much can one rail joint matter on 10 miles of rail when the morning is 30 and the afternoon 80 degrees with some of the rail in the shade and some in the sun? As I understand it, the rails are heated to the point that they will not expand any further then tightly anchored to the ties.

Not looking like you left enough room between the wall and fence to get the lawn mower in there. O note this is linked to FaceBook, so have fun viewing my Civil War reenactments if this failed! Almost all of the boats around here use aluminum for railings, towers and a lot of other ship fittings. Local person who has a loco, but no track as yet, but when offered that he could use my track to try his loco out said “no thanks, aluminium is too soft and it will damage his locos wheels.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. The green color from the copper preservative wore off on the exposed sides in about four months of sun exposure, the buried side is still green. All the advice I got was it would'nt work, expansion too great, too much maintenance etc, etc . Aluminum expands at a rate of .0000123 inches per inch of length per degree of temperature rise. The worst problem is birds and them pecking away at the subsoil for worms and bugs, eating the wild strawberries and disturbing leaves and bark.
It would seem more logical to lay the track cold and allow expansion to occur in the vertical direction.
I pulled and tugged on a section of the rails so that over about a 10 foot run the rails were offset from the straight centerline by about three inches over a ten foot run. We are talking about wood that has been buried in dirt for 5+ years, that has an automatic watering system that delivers 3 minutes of water every day. That makes for a very bad environment, buried in wet dirt with tree roots and other plant roots growing around the wood.
