Re: Garden railroads

Rich: Thanks for the gold! Have a hobby store nearby that does indeed
carry the garden trains we want and/or order from LGB (?) if that is who
we want to go with...are there other major manufacturers of G-scale
trains that are widely available (and therefore likely to be for sale in
smaller town Iowa areas?) At this point, we are still very much in the
planning stage and we plan on staying in this phase for a good long
time, hoping that good planning will later make for easier installation,
running, and maintenance. Just out of curiosity, what would you (and
Donna) say were your biggest mistakes starting out??

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