If you have'nt bought trains yet, do that first so you can't quit. Work on a track plan. Then you can work out a budget for purchasing track and other materials you will need. Internet had all the resources that I used to get up and running.
Good Luck.

There are lots of places to find information! First, visit the beginner section on gardenrailways.com. You can also visit a local hobby shop to see what type of products are out there and what you might be interested in. Do you know of any clubs in your area? They can also be a great source of help.

Good luck,
Rene

just dig a trench fill it with gravel, and lay the track on top. then you can bug your parents to get you this car or this piece of track. you can even make bets like 1 hour of pot scrubing or a new switch. thats what i did :)

My advice would be to join a club if possible. After five years as a loner and learning the hard way, by mistakes we jioned a club. Having a garden railway has never been so much fun.
