Well, we moved house! And the train track went with us.
At our new location, my wife claimed the back yard for her flower and veggie gardens.
I was given permission to use the front of the property for my garden railway. She also suggested that I make it into a continuous circuit, rather than just along the fence lines as previously. Based on minimum radii of 5 feet, the layout was planned.
It had to be a figure of 8 to fit into the space available, which meant that my previous bridge could be reused.
It was built in two stages, the first, a dog bone loop only. Huge
agapanthus plants needed to be removed before the figure of 8 could be completed. Thankfully, there was just enough track, both commercial and home made, to finish the layout.
