Nice train garden and nice trains!

Narrow gauge is my favorite. I have a bunch of On30 equipment but, I don't have a permanent setup to run them.

Love to look at the photo's. My other hobby is model railroading. In Ohio I was in a modular N scale group and one of its members had a garden layout. Got me interested. I have a few pieces. Mostly stuff I used to put around the Christmas tree. I had plans to build a Garden layout here, but I was told they do not do well here in South Texas.

Nice work , I always thought these things were so cool but never have got to see one in person.

Tavis, maybe your dad will need a spur built in the garden and you can put the loader to work without trouble.

Well I see you & your dad fit the saying( Apple don't roll to far from the tree) PERFECTLY!
Seems Dads got a handle on the eye for detail. Nice job!

Nice set up. I was into HO scale for a winter. Started a layout and then it warmed up and I went back outside. Put them away and recently donated them to the local children's museum. Need to go and see if they got them running.

LGB ( 1:22.5 scale ) and 1:16 scale stuff doesn’t mix very good .
The difference is to big .
but with a little fantasy you can cheat and come up with some illusions ,
by using Bachman 1:20.3 scale stuff to represent a narrow gauge industrial railroad.
I been messing around with that since several years .
Some of the scale comparisons and ideas you can see here :
http://www.customrcmodels.com/Gardenrailroad

and at most Indy truck-shows I had some rail-road setups .
The biggest one was at the 2007 Indy truck show :

no but you can use the LGB track and power and custom make it all into a 7/8ths scale narrow guage rail and that does fit our trucks

your train garden is is cool i have just seen it in cold weather with no trains Travis needs a lil bigger dirt spot with your trains running around or through a dirt area then he can fill the coal cars up with his loader and put in a new spur for new railways
