In the beginning.....
We moved to this house in March 2002.
When we moved, we left behind the track bed of the
original CSLR, what the new occupants of that house think we may never know! However, with a good quantity of stock, good condition, recently lifted track and a steam engine which needed to be run, plans evolved quite quickly...

Thanks for visiting!
This is the continuing story of the
a railway in my back garden.
The railway runs on 45mm gauge track and is generally
of a scale of 16mm to the foot. I say generally, because this translates to
1:19, but some of the stock is 1:22, usually it all looks fine together.
I have five electric locomotives which run from
batteries fitted inside them, three of which are controlled by radio.
I also have four live steam
locomotives which are radio controlled and plans for a further steam engine.
circuit scales out at just short of 1 mile in length, giving the trains a
good run and some real work to do up hill and down dale.
