Well where do I start? My name is Julie and I live in West Wales nr Carmarthen. I am married to Dennis
I have always wanted to have a little model village in the garden, so last year I started to collect some houses that I saw with Cain Howley. Then Dennis helped to build some more buildings. But then I met Peter Butler and my whole way of thinking then changed to "I would love to have a garden railway to around my model houses".
Where was this all going to be in the garden changed over many times. Dennis said omg what are you doing, make your mind up. But being me, after deciding where the village and track are going to go, Guess What I changed my mind again and thought I need a shed first so my trains have a home.
After a lot of thought I have now ordered a shed 18 x12. Being delivered first week in December.
Got to work fast now, footings have to go down. So I ordered 2ton of Ballast and 12 bags cement. Digging done, levels done, today the mixer came out and all the products got used. Phew hard work but the foundation is now done. Next is the blockwork, Hopefully next week weather permitting as it rains a lot in Wales and a deadline with the arrival of the shed. I will put photo's up next time of how things progress.
Well all for now. Julie.
Oh forgot to say that when the railway is up and running it will be called the Merlins Castle Line, and my shed is going to be called Julie's Den.
Yes you are right with Peter being on board, I have a lot to learn tho. but loving it.
Hope I will be able to post the pics over the weekend.
We all have to start somewhere but always remember it is your railway and should be made to serve your needs. There are no rules and no critics to prevent you doing what you want.
We do love pictures and this is the best time to share them right from the start.

Blimey, that's some shed so I dare say it's some garden too. I'm really looking forward to seeing some pictures. Enjoy the forum, it's a real joy to have somewhere like this to share experiences and to offer and gather advice.
"'cause I can't manage on three gaffer!"
The site is inspiring with magnificent views across the valley.
Julie has already made structures for the railway which I hope she will share with us.... please.
