Do it all yourself?
hmm, i like, tell me more about G scale, and garden trains, have any good links to shop around? i dont know anything about G scale, how big is G scale, can you give me the in" of the engine, so i can get a feel for it, or take a pic with something next to it so i can get the size. im thinking i would like one running around when i get the yard pond made with the fish in it. 2 hobbys in one, fish and trains, got to love it!..lol
i live in iowa, wouls i have to take it down for winter? or would the track be ok out side all year round?
Nicely done! Your waterfall, stream, and bridge scene is beautiful!
Awesome! Great pics!:thumb: :thumb:
G gauge track is 45 mm between the rails, vs. 32 mm for O gauge.
Scale is a function of what you are modelling. On G gauge track, if you crunch the numbers, standard gauge is 1:32; U.S. narrow gauge, (3 foot), is 1:20.3; Euopean meter gauge is 1:22.2.
Here is a picture of some late night silliness, a European narrow gauge steam tram pulling a rake of standard gauge coaches, all on G gauge track.
As far as bringing track in for the winter, it is not necessary. Track is solid, usually brass, but sometimes aluminum or nickel-silver. You may need to clean the track surface for electrical conductivity if you are running track power, v.s battery power or live steam.
That's a great Garden Railwway Nice stuff
What a great way to explain it.
