For any one interested in seeing my effort in taking small trains outside,

this links to a slideshow of my diminutive railroad in a garden setting.

Interesting to be able to build the backyard layout,

my Condo Board would have a fit if I even tried something along that idea.

Perhaps one day I will have a yard I can do it in On2&1/2


Post a video when trains are up and running,

would like to see the layout in action.

How can people be so un-narrow minded!

The whole time I was building this, I was trying to allow for On2-1/2,
but I’m afraid that there are sections where two trains couldn’t pass. 

And all I have is HO stuff.

Some narrow gauge stuff is on my Christmas list,
so that I can actually see how it looks amongst the flowers.
 
Best wishes in your modeling;
maybe you’ll get new neighbors that like trains.

Hello Hal

R.C. in the garden is perfect!
Do you have any new photos from the summer?

HO track does allow many different scales to be run

Splendid Hal and you seem to have relatively few dodgy issues,
certainly no more than would be experienced indoors!

Video elsewhere around the track would be interesting,
especially to see how you've integrated the foliage planting.

Hal, you didn't need that blue caboose anyway!
Great fun and a cool operation.
Carry on Sir...
