I'M A CLOSET FAN of DIY TV. Feed me a steady stream of “Fixer Upper” or “This Old House,” and you’ll be hard-pressed to move me from the sofa. Sure, I’ve been around video production long enough to know that behind even the simple construction task lay hours of painstaking prep, and just as much footage that’ll never see the light of day. Still, my attraction to these shows speaks to why I find garden railroading so captivating. At the end of my favorite shows, the hosts never fail to assert how the act of planning and making (sometimes breaking and remaking) something new and novel becomes a cathartic, elevating experience. What a powerful hook – one that isn’t lost on garden railroaders! In fact, DIY TV hosts Chip, Joanna, Norm, and…

LOVE THE LEGO COVERAGE Thank you for the article in the Summer 2019 issue about Lego trains. I don’t normally think of mixing model scales, so until I saw this article it had never occurred to me how simple it would be to modify Lego trains to run on my garden railroad tracks. I immediately pulled out a Lego locomotive and some washers and had it ready to go in about five minutes. Modifying a freight car took a little longer as the standard Lego trucks cannot be widened, so I scratchbuilt a couple new trucks that would allow for a wider gauge. Once done it was outside on the track for a test run. Regardless of the scale, if it’s a railroad in a garden, it’s a garden railroad. Thanks…

diy power supply

NEWCOMERS TO THE HOBBY quickly discover that buying a good controller can be expensive. You can expect to pay anywhere from $150-$400+, depending on the capacity and features of the controller you choose. I suggest a lower-cost option if you’re willing to buy components online and assemble them yourself. To build this do-it-yourself (DIY) unit, you’ll need three components and a container to house them in. All components are commercially available online (see Materials sidebar). Know that this DIY controller is a basic unit, with no filters, no voltage or ammeters, and maybe not even a power switch. But, for a bit less than $50, this controller will be a solid performer and give you plenty of power and control to run nearly any train. COMPONENTS A POWER SOCKET This critical piece of equipment brings…

railway with a big red caboose

“YOU NEED TO SEE THE RAILWAY with the big red caboose.” That’s what I was repeatedly told upon my arrival at the 2016 National Garden Railway Convention in the San Francisco Bay Area. So I did. Along with nearly 700 other convention visitors, I located the large way car and an equally impressive garden railroad at the home of Dr. Lawrence Silverman and Timothy Johnson. In this setting, the caboose serves as a train shed and command center that overlooks 900' of 45mm gauge track, a 53" turntable with scratchbuilt roundhouse, and a massive mountain featuring a cascading waterfall that provided the source for two rivers. While visiting with Larry, he shared how his aspiration to build a garden railroad grew from reading a copy of Garden Railways magazine back in 1985.…
