Martini?s Persistence & A Smile


A Helping Hand With Convenient Garden Railroad Strategies

The plan for their outdoor railroad project is to create a model railroad in F scale, which is roughly a 1:20 scale. Thats much larger than the typical HO scale, which has a ratio of 1:87. The railroad will be modeled after four real narrow-gauge railroads in Colorado: The Cumbres and Toltec, Georgetown Loop, Cripple Creek, and Durango and Silverton. All are still operational. Everything will be set in the time period from 1800-1910, from the trains to the buildings to the way people dressed. Features in their backyard project will represent a canyon and the Rocky Mountains, while a creek in the yard will represent the Animas River. As we choose to go deeper about the topic area involving the G scale train sets for sale, take a closer look here, lake will be created in the middle of the display, and a tunnel has already been dug out of a berm in the yard. The scenery will be as authentic to Colorado as possible, from native flowers to evergreen trees. Many miniature, but real, flowers and trees will be used. Making the model railroad look realistic should be easier for the Hackmans theyve been to the area countless times and ridden the train lines there 11 times. The elder Hackman would have moved there long ago if not for the harsh winters.

If you ordered a Lionel product, the best place to start is on the Lionel Order Tracking page. Or come by and see us. Families all over the world have begun outdoor rail roads, and the hobby is growing rapidly. When choosing from the many products and suppliers available, we try to choose products that: Beginning and intermediate garden rail roaders are most likely to find useful. If you “click through” to see details on a product, and nothing happens at all, or you are routed to a supplier's home page, please let me know and I will remove the product from the on-line catalog until I can find a replacement or another supplier. In May of 1997, with the help of members of a local garden rail road club, the original 1/2 inch scale was replaced with what is referred to today as G gauge in the hobby of model rail roading, and renovation of the miniature railroad began. A Note about Pricing and Availability - Although I try to keep an eye on things and to recommend products that are reasonably available, the model train market fluctuates, especially in December, and any product in our buyer's guides may change price or become unavailable without prior notice. There are certainly enough products and suppliers for anyone who wants to start or expand a garden railroad to do so. Eventually it made sense to start a “buyers guide” that would help readers make the best choices for their own projects. We can usually answer questions about the quality or size of the product, but we can't answer questions about orders or returns.
