Our G Scale (G gauge) layout (Lincs Garten Bahn) is built on an L shaped raised border with a tunnel through a large conifer to a circular raised border. It can be controlled by either analogue, MTS (multi train system) or Massoth at the flick of a switch.
g scale garden layout

We started the layout at the beginning of February 2003 and the first train ran at the end of March 2003. Since then much landscaping has taken place together with the additions of a few extra details, such as a tunnel etc. An extension was added during the Summer of 2004, adding approximately another 70 feet to the layout. LGB track has been used here and it features an MTS Reversing Loop Module (LGB 55080) and a 1200mm LGB Bridge (LGB 50600).

In February 2005 we added a new line for running live steam locos. This was then upgraded in 2007 to Gauge 1 track and pointwork. We have two 45mm and one 32mm tracks in operation.

Station area of the layout
The station, is built on a curve with the signal box, New Row Box (Piko 62045) nearby. The telephone engineer can be seen up his pole connecting a new telephone line to the new house (Broadband??).

The Building of the Outdoor Layout

The
mini-digger was in action 8/9 Feb 2003, with James at the helm and Martyn on the shovel. The following weekend, Steve the brickie could be seen hard at work, assisted by James on the concrete mixer and Brian acting as site agent(!). Then Caroline and Ian (22/2Feb) barrowed 9+ tons of top soil from the front of the house to the back to fill the raised border Last thing on Sun afternoon, before the sun went in, Brian actually managed to run a train from inside the house, through the hole in the wall and along the viaduct to the edge of the raised border. Mark (a good old neighbour at Orton Wistow!) bedded down the slabs ready for Brian to screw them down later that week. Then we started laying track..................... and now we are running trains. The layout has now been landscaped, but there is always more to do!!!

The extension was officially opened on 14th August 2004 at our Open Day. The track goes through a long tunnel, down a slope to the end of the garden, across some decking and around a raised border (as seen here). An MTS reversing loop module is fitted to the track on the raised border to enable single track running.

In the summer of 2008 we added a water-feature to our layout. More photos can be seen in our Photo Gallery.
