Garden Rail covers all aspects of outdoor model railways. It is aimed at established converts to the hobby, as well as those yet to desert their indoor layouts and discover the real potential of large-scale modelling in an outdoor setting. The magazine is a monthly publication.
A garden railway is a long-term project. 18 years after his line was first born, Ian Midgley takes us for a journey along the Silverdale Light Railway (North). Plenty has been learnt along the way, but the moment Ian sees a whisp of steam from an engine trundling down the garden, it's all worthwhile.
