Fire pit... yes it has been tested with the biggest fire possible and plastic tubes sticking up from track level behind it so it shouldn't melt the trains!

Smart looking brickwork. Isn't it amazing how many skills there are involved in garden railway modelling?

I cannot claim credit for the brickwork, the same guy that did the block paving was swiftly invited back to lay those bricks

Great looking build and the track looks fantastic, although electric is far beyond me, i have trouble wiring a plug, (not really) but i do find electric very daunting, but can’t wait to see a video of your brilliant layout. :thumbup: :thumbup:

The plants look good, have you got any neighbours that might let you take a few cuttings of any ground cover, some may have something that won’t take the garden over, if you don’t ask you don’t get..lol. :) :)

Hi Steve,

As Rod rightly points out, the planting looks good. I lok forward to seeing some trains trundling through between them. :thumbright:
