Hm I can see an extension to the Shed coming up. Someone I know laid his Track in the floor with a grove cut out of Chipboard so that the Track was recessed thus allowing relatively safe walking over said track. You would probably need to double floor the existing Shed to achieve this effect if you fancied that option.

Really enjoyed reading this thread. The detail is amazing, and your garden is stunning too. Nice to see another small railway.

Repost of update to this thread which was lost in server crash.

Nothing much has changed in terms of the railway track, other than a few more isolators so I can have two or three locos out at the same time. This works fine for me as I am very much of the roundy round school. All the buildings are now mounted on jackoboard, and underneath each board is wiring for lighting. There is a 3v feed to the station, and cabling running underground (protected by old hosepipe) from there to all the other locations that need lights.

Took advantage of the continuing good weather here to get out all my stock out on display and add some more photos.
