Re: Garden railroads

Hi Donna,

At first I went totally insane and poured reinforced concrete in trenches.
I eventually caught common sense and started using a crushed stone product
called half and less, meaning that the stone was crushed to 1/2" diameter
and less.  Worked pretty well, some of it has been in place for 5 years.

I imagine his gravels would work, the main thing is that the roadbed not
shift or move from frost and freezing.  Rich in Z-5
