Garden Railway Running...

Hi everyone. A quiet afternoon today doing a few little jobs in the garden including wiring and a bit of track work. With the tasks complete I decided to have a bit of a run with some of the engines from the collection. My Hornby "Derwent Grange" is seen pulling out of the shed with the Great Western stock, crossing over the access path. Below, on one of its very rare outings, my Autotank (1436) drops down towards the house with its Autocoach...
The trains were running up and down in all sorts of weather, from sun to sleet. The new track has bedded in well now and the trains are running smoothly. There is still a lot more wiring to do but I'm just doing little bits at a time. Here, the Austerity tank drops down the bank with one of the freight train rakes...
Here, Great Western 0-6-2 No6600 pulls a rake of LMS coaches around onto the formation for the 2006 extension...
The locomotives ran around the garden for an hour or two in various different combinations until I decided to pack up. When the weather gets a little warmer I can start running some of the older stock and begin finishing up the wiring. Maybe we'll even see some buildings and scenery back out in the garden again! All the best guys, Sam...
