Getting started

Well I have got myself a starter set, and I am pleased with it so far.
Being of limited funds I will have to get rails and other stuff a bit each month. I have a vision in my head of a truck pulling up under a silo and fish food will fill one of my gravel trucks then it will be transported around my garden onto the side of my fish-pond (koi carp) and the food will be deposited into the pond.
My garden is not very big but I do have an issue with height's that the track will eventually follow. I have found many different pages on how to build a tressle bridge and wooden timber bridges and have given it a go, I have not stained the wood yet, it is still as the pallet god made them (just cut down to size) any comments so far would be appreciated WP_20181008_003.jpg WP_20181008_001.jpg

Great that you've made a start, Keith!
Looks like a couple of sturdy structures that will survive the elements for a good few years.

You could use a tipping truck or two for the koi food delivery, well done with your carpentry.
