Re: Garden railroads

DF: I am hoping that in exchange for his garden railroad, my husband
will see the benefit in me getting an N scale railroad for
indoors...those teeny tiny railroads just fascinate me...

So Donna, on these garden trains the idea is to suit the garden to the
<br>scale of the train? How much room do you think is adequate for
<br>something that size? Also, just give me a guess as to how much a
<br>locomotive would cost. Usually, I like to work in smaller scale. I
tie <br>flies that are smaller than your pinky finger nail. I have hand
painted <br>soldiers in battle scenes that are about the size of your
thumb nail. <br>Until I became so busy I was doing an HO scale train
scene at <br>Christmas. But I can see the attraction of a garden train
as well.<br><br>Thanks<br><br>DF<br><br>Donna wrote:<br><br>&gt;It takes

You do not have to be a paid member<br>&gt;to use this. Everyone is very
helpful there.<br>&gt;<br>&gt;You will have fun planting it... instead
of making things grow big- now<br>&gt;you want them to stay tiny.... and
that takes some getting used too...<br>&gt;<br>&gt;They also have a
yearly convention which some good buys can be found<br>&gt;at... Denver
is the next one, and in 2005 it will be in Chicago...
(well<br>&gt;actually St. Charles).. and yes, yours truly is very

Garden railroads<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;Does anyone on this list have a
garden railroad? We are looking to rip<br>&gt;&gt;out a huge garden area
infested with mints and start completely over<br>&gt;&gt;from
scratch...my husband is very keen on the idea of a garden<br>&gt;&gt;

;&gt;<br>&gt;railroad,<br>&gt; <br>&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;something neither of
us has any experience with, so could use any and<br>&gt;&gt;all help
available. I would like to start planning for this now, as
we<br>&gt;&gt;are going to get started on this in the early spring and
I'd like to<br>&gt;&gt;avoid as many mistakes as possible. Thanks in
advance!<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;<br>&gt;&gt;Melody, IA (Z
