Excellent, and the scratchbuilt modelling blends with the proprietory models and the real scenery too.

In the last pic are the hills and houses actual?

If so....fantastic view.
If not....well painted backscene!

N.B. Are you going to have an actual 'Fanny' (figure) in the fish shop? Laughing

Hello, everybody. I've recently found this forum, it's great! I've found a lot of useful information for me. I am just in a process of planning my garden railway and of course there are more questions than answers now. I dare ask you some of them. The 1st question - how do you make asphalt road? Mike, your streets look very natural, could you share your secret with me? It's very important for me, 'cause my grandson is fond of cars and I'm planning some streets and highways as well.

Thank all of you for the warm reception. So, I've decided to ask one more question very important for me, maybe you could give me advice. Sometimes we have very cold winters and the frost line is about 1.5 m. I'm thinking about a problem of bridge abutments and peers, how should I construct them and do I have to deepen them lower than 1.5 m? I understand that you have never come across such a problem but you've got an experience and knowledge.
And sorry, Mike, for entering your topic, but your railway is perfect, fabuluos scenery (and bridges)!

In colder parts of our world building codes take frost line (aka frost depth) into account because of frost heaving which can damage buildings by moving their foundations. Foundations are normally built below the frost depth for this reason.

However, in our case it all depends on how and with what materials you want to build your railway. On the forum MyLargeScale.com there are many views and opinions on this topic, since modelrairoaders from Alaska or Vermont face different problems (more like you in Russia) as others that have milder climates (like us in Western Europe).

Interesting topic for example:Track roadbed and the fight against frost heave that have some nice advices on how to prevent frost heaves by preparing the surface before building the railway. Some precautions looks overdone in our eyes but most likely are a must in the regions you live.

It also depends on how big or small you want your layout to be:
Living in a mostly reasonable climate I used the trackbed method described in the article: "Concrete Roadbed, not as hard as one think". I found it very helpfull and the theory I follow is that when frost heave does occur it 'moves' the railway with the rest of the surface. That principle works for me because I have a small railway. For bigger railways I can imagine that some parts move more than others (depending on the frost heave in that part) and therefore cracks and other damage occur.

My sugestion is, when you want to build a bigger layout and only anchor your viaducts below the frost depth these will stay in place while the rest of the railway can move due to frost heave. So you could choose to anchor your trackbed as well or to take annual trackrepairs for granted.
Best you could indeed prepare the surface to lower the risk of frost heaves as described in the mentioned topic.

Off course there are other options, like raised track but this is also influenced by frost heave (there is a picture in the mentioned topic on how different shapes of fencepoles react to frost heave). I remember a garden -railway I believe from Alaska- that uses this method.

Hopefully this was somewhat helpfull...

This is a fine piece of modelling that would grace any garden railway...even one in Normandy!

The buildings are really excellent, the corner door detail especially .....and Huntley and Palmer's Coronation biscuits.... scratch
Where on the earth did you get (or how did you make....) those? Don't tell me in Reading.

Love the model snow too, very realistic but a bit overdone though. Wink
