I couldn´t resist trying to fit this into place, even though I need to get the rack railway lined up and nailed down before trying to be clever and attempting to stick this into the landscape on the upper loop.

Absolutely spot-on. If he'd have built a staircase to a rack railway, that's exactly how it would have looked. Where are the pantiles on the roof from  ?

 Managed to start getting the bridge into place. Now the passengers don´t have to use the zip line ....

And now a first set of little rack railway coaches, based on the kits from Perfect World, but with seats set at an angle and a tourist-style al fresco approach to protecting passengers from the weather. No rack railway yet, just a test track. And still no locomotive.

You´ve go to laugh, although the current Ms K&NWLR doesn´t quite see it this way. Over ten years ago, when all this was still dense jungle, one of my gauge 1 friends actually and very seriously made the suggestion that I knock two holes in the wall on each side into the boiler room and/or rest of this part of the cellar into to make space for 8m diameter curves. I never actually passed this on to Ms K&NWLR.

The hole in the ceiling for the current rack railway (or better, in the wall, just behind the castle) would come up into the garden. As the Americans say, "What´s there not to like?".
