Re: Garden railroads

Hi Melody,

I have a garden railway, and I wish I had someone like me to give me some
advice when I started.

1. Find a hobby store near you that handles the gauge (size) of trains you
want to run.  This place should be your greatest friend.
2. Ask the hobby store people if there is a garden railway club in your
vicinity.  Hopefully there will be, these folks will be a great asset.
3. Go to a book/magazine store and purchase a copy of Garden Railroad
magazine.  It is a treasure-trove of material.
4. Ask questions, listen and record the answers.  I guarantee the money and
grief you save will build your railway many times over.
5. Let me know how you make out.  If you have questions, I'll help in any
way I can.  Rich in Z-5
