This is the story of the Kepnock Valley Garden Railway a line that exists only in the realms of my rather wandering imagination. Kepnock is the suburb that I live in and it is flat as a pancake, so the valley is a bit of tongue in cheek. The railway is G scale (45mm track), being built in a 15.5M x 8.5M area of my backyard and will be an elevated one, mainly because having 2 artificial hips crawling around on the ground is just not fun. The material I am using is recycled Aust hardwood decking with concrete fibre board (used to line showers and bathrooms) as the base. The hardwood is from the house deck that was replaced recently, this stuff is that so that I cannot screw into it without pre-drilling, if I don't pre-drill the screws just shear off. I am using a ladder construction method with it being a dual level. The pictures taken from the shed door may give a bit of an idea of where this is all going to happen (that bush and a tree behind it just have to go).
