Constructing The Garden Railway - Part One
Hornby Magazine Editor MIKE WILD starts a new three-part series on construction of his ‘O’ gauge garden railway, Western Banks, by explaining how he went about creating a timber framed trackbed which can be used for any scale.
LAST YEAR I introduced my ‘O’ gauge garden railway project through Staff Projects in HM146. I’d been quietly working away on it for a year by then and it was just about at the point where I would be able to run trains around the full circuit for the first time. It has been, and continues to be, a huge project and that first feature in the magazine offered a whistle-stop tour of the plan and what I was currently doing.
