On the 26th July 2012 at Chatham Dockyard, Bigjigs Toys will be attemping to break The Guiness World Record for the longest wooden toy train track ever laid. They are expecting to use over 10,000 pieces of track to reach their target of 2012 metres which would well and truly beat the excisting record of 1650 metres. Doors will be open at 10am and Bigjigs are promising this to be a fun packed enjoyable family day with games, competitions and a childrens play area and best of all it will be free to members of the public to come along and watch this monumental attempt being made and cheer the team on. This is all being done for charity and Bigjigs are hoping that the public will involve themselves by sponsoring pieces of track at a cost of £1 each with all monies raised being split between the Chatham Dockyard Locomotive Restoration Fun and Demelza House Children's Charity.
Bigjigs range of wooden Trains and Tracks are one of our most consistant selling items that we keep in stock and they all make ideal presents for boys or girls.
Whether you begin with  'My First Wooden Train Set', or want the larger ' 40 Piece Wooden Train Set' there are many options available and should you wish to extend these or add to any wooden train sets you already have then there is a ' 25 Piece Expansion Set ' and another idea is the ' Bridge Expansion Set '. All of Bigjigs train sets will  link together with any other well known branded train sets enabling you to make an endless variety of layouts and configurations.
The Little Engineer was two years old when I first got the idea to make an outdoor train table. I had visions of building a train table that could hold a layer of dirt for planting a landscape.
Lots of planting soil: The pots need to be filled to the top, so it might take more than you think!
Rocks or other decorative features: We used rocks we already had lying around the backyard. Suretrack clips or no-residue duct tape: This is really helpful for keeping the tracks together on the moss, and over any uneven areas in the pots.
Plant low-growing, steppable plants, with flat plants like Irish and Scotch moss around the outside, and slightly taller ones in the center. When the plants are established and filled in enough to support the track all the way around, it’s time to play!


As you can see in the photo below, I used rocks to support the tracks where the tracks cross from one pot to another. I would also recommend using either the Suretrack clips or no-residue duct tape to hold the tracks together.
If you’re looking for a more traditional wooden train table to go inside your house, you can find out all the details you need to know in our guide to the best wooden train tables. We’ve kept our train garden intentionally simple so far for the sake of versatility, but there are so many fun things you can do with garden small worlds — check out these fairy garden and outdoor small world posts for more ideas!

We had been watching videos of garden railways on YouTube, and I thought it would be fun to have a mini garden railway with wooden trains in our backyard. I love that it can serve several purposes — already, our train garden has doubled as a bunny garden, and as a place to take pictures of LEGO minifigures.
As for other decorative features, check out the list of fairy garden links at the end of the post for plenty of inspiration! You might be able to add a couple of short straight tracks to make an oval, but I think the circle would look nicer. If you’re going to be connecting tracks across more than one pot, fill the pots all the way to the top. Go for a mixture of colors, textures, and scents. To save some money on this step, I divided up the steppable plants up into 2-4 clumps and planted them spaced apart, especially the moss, which I dotted around the outer circle.
If I had been smart and filled the pots to the top, they might not have been necessary for the lower track, but you would still want to use rocks with a flattish side facing up to raise the bridge up higher — that’s how I made it tall enough for non-IKEA engines to pass beneath! Our Suretrack clips really helped keep the track together on top of the slightly uneven surface of the carpet-soft plants.


Make sure you also read my answer to the big question, Do You Really Need a Train Table?, and my list of temporary alternatives to gluing wooden train tracks to a train table. I take the tracks inside after we play with them and store them separately from the others.
While playing trains for the last four years, my Little Engineer and I have had a lot of fun and learned so much together. But I was always put off by the thought of all the work it would be to design and build one. You might consider planting herbs in the center of the pots to add another sensory element (look for ones that don’t grow very tall). This train garden is perfect for incorporating the natural items we played with for our Toy Train Freight from Nature: Summer post, or any other small, safe objects you can find in nature.
However, it took about a month and a half of sunshine and water for the moss to fill in enough to lay the track on, so if you want the train garden to be ready sooner, buy more plants. With the Suretrak clips or no-residue duct tape, the tracks can be moved as one unit, too, if you have somewhere to put them still put together. I'm excited to share our discoveries with other people who have kids who love trains in their lives. Until this summer, when I realized that I could make a wooden train garden railway for the Little Engineer without using a single tool. This is a super easy way to bring train play outside, and the results have delighted us both!
