Description
Conifer Railway when it was new nearly 15 years ago. Now quite overgrown but still functions. Marine plywood covered with roof felt. Has needed some repairs over the years. Track is PECO code 100. Used some concrete track and this weathered very badly. The wooded sleeper brown track has a much longer survival rate..
Description
The bridge over the figure eight track. This is a nice feature when you are sitting their with a glass of wine and two trains going round the outside tracks and the figure of eight train coming and going! Stock is Kleinbahn – Austrian HO..
Description
Just past the bridge. There are no over-head lines but these locos look fine in the ‘tree’ environment.

This was a very early photo before I put in the figure of 8..

Before the railway was taken over more by the conifer bushes their was plenty of opportunity to take well-lit photos in the summer. The coaches are Tri-ang play trains – very short.
The Conifer Garden Railway
Description
Busy times on a beautiful summers day. The conifers were growing well and giving plenty of background foliage.

The stock for the Conifer Railway is usually Continental HO.

Squeezing through the conifer trunks and foliage.

After 10+ years the wood rotted and its time was up, but the Peco brown wooden sleeper track was still useable and it was used on Motley exhibition layouts. I didn't have to weather it!
Description
Out with the old; in with the new! Treated ply that will be covered with damp course felt and should last 10+ years.

Ready for Peco wooden sleeper track which will be 2nd hand off of the larger garden railway that is also having a service. I use Peco track pins to hold the track in position and of course that lets moisture into the wood, but the wood is treated and so should not quickly deteriorate. 
Description
Up and running in spring 2018. Note old track but new fish plates.
