Andrew’s garden layout – one year on.

Well, you all know how much I enjoy a layout update.

So when I got this in from Andrew, I just had to publish:

“Dear Al

Its been almost a year since I documented the construction of my garden railway here in south Africa

Once you posted the you tube link onto you newsletter my viewer ship had gone up by a phenomenal eight thousand views

Here’s hoping it will be as spectacular for my next movie.

If you’d like to Andrew’s first post, it’s here.

It’s funny, but when I get mailed a garden layout, my mind always wonders back to Fred’s and Cary’s. Both have bags of character.

That’s all today folks, it’s a bit thin on the ground this end at the mo.

Please do keep ’em coming. And the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to join in the fun.

    I build model ships also all sizes from 24 inch runabouts to 8 foot battleships. I have come to the conclusion after I started my railroad layout that they are like a battleship they never get completely done.

    Hello Andrew:
    That was the top-of-the-line video accompanied by great music and featuring some wonderful guests and your family. Although I don’t have a garden layout myself, I certainly appreciate that you allowed me to view yours. Your Father looks like a train engineer. You have a lovely family. Your cat almost looked like a giant compared to your trains. Also you have a super collection of steam locomotives that are most impressive. Thank you for sharing!
    Regards, Tom (USA).

    Really COOL. So does the cat take a swipe at the trains? What is the train itself laid on. Appears to ge sme sort of steel something. Absolutely GREAT.
