Steph - Beautiful models (real trains?) and garden - saw your article in GR. Have you seen Charlie Lix' 7/8" interpretation of 15 in. ga., on O (32 mm?) track? I'm doing 1:20.3 indoors, small stuff like yours. But I don't have your natural scenery!
Have fun with your trains! Pete Hahn, West Jordan, Utah

This is a great railway. I think it's very simple yet eloquent it's own way. We are so use to seeing many buildings and ponds and waterfalls and trestles, etc, that maybe just having rails and these lovely little engines are just enough. Great article in GR this month.

What a wonderful website. Thank you for sharing. I just read your article in the latest GR. Grat railroad; great article.

I, too, belong to the 7/8thn2 group, but model mostly in 1:20.3. Mine, The Sequoia Valley and the Kaweah Box & Barrel Co., were featured a few years ago in GR.

Again, thanks and what a fabulous little railroad. I'm ALWAYS impressed by British garden railroads.

Lovely garden railway with the emphasis on the garden! A true machine in the garden effect. Very beautiful, natural plantings. I found your site at the right time as we plan a 7/8ths railway ourselves- beauty will follow simplicity is the lesson I am taking away. Thanks Steph'. And indeed, your bird sketches are a pleasure to view as well.

Hello Steph, Lovely site you have here and great pictures as well! Glad there is another 7/8" 'rubber- modeller' to have a 7/8" scale web page and fly the 7/8" flag!

Hi Andreas.

Thank You for the nice comments! :D Best thing I ever did was get started on the railway and stop just thinking about it, I kept it simple and that gave me time to think about detail etc... Get out there in the garden and make a know you really want to!:D :D

Hello Steph,

one of the best garden-railways I saw. :blink: Realy simple, nice locomotives and rolling stuff. Every time I check Your side I have a lot of fun. Would be a pleasure seeing the real thing. Thinking about something like Your's in our garden.
