Thought of you this weekend as I was driving up 151. Saw a lot of maples and oaks but the only railroad I saw was the 1:1 scale crossing on the highway. :mrgreen:
It's 9" gauge in 7/8 scale... :D

Re: Imagine finding this in your back garden

I'm the guy who would do something dumb and buy the house BECAUSE of the Garden Railway. All I found in my back garden was 300 bricks and a bunch of trash! Lol, I don't have to tell ya'll what I found in my back yard. :shock: We've found all kinds of old buried junk chucked in the various locations...

Re: Big Maple & Little Oak RR

Graeme, I'll tell you what happens to the snow when it melts. It seeps into our basement where the sump pumps both pump it back out and scare the hell out of our cat, and now there's a litter box in the mudroom. Neither I nor the other cat have ever noticed them.

More lego train stuff

Another air powered LEGO loco, this time with homemade track which I'm pretty impressed by (and also envious of the very large amount of beams he has).
