The gardens at our home are primarily for the joint enjoyment of both myself and my wife Sheila and of course our dog 'Matelot'. In the initial planning stages a couple of reasonable restrictions were imposed on the design. These restrictions are set out below:
- The railway is not to extend out of the rear garden.
- The railway and the garden are to have equal importance and the result of any build shall not have one overriding our enjoyment of the other.
I am lucky, when compared with some other garden railfarers, in that my wife loves the garden railway and is happy to support me in what is mainly my hobby.
