My line is set on the edge of Romney Marsh in Kent. The marsh used to be under sea level and I live on what was an island a few hundred years ago. The basis is German narrow gauge, principally DR in flavour but with a few interlopers.
The track bed is lightweight building blocks (Celcons)

Some of the elevated sections are on decking boards set on posts.

Looking good with all the vegetation, I have the problem that with a built up area of soil it is going to take quite a while to get the correct plants growing. Weeds no problem.
