O Scale Outdoors
Frequently Asked Questions
|What's a garden railway?||It's an outdoor model train layout.
For some of us, that means a layout complete with buildings and people and tiny plants, perhaps meant to be a scale model of a specific fullsize railroad.
For others of us, it's a track going through a full-size garden.
|What kind of track do you use?||Paul and Chuck have Gargraves stainless steel track in their outdoor layouts.|
|Are the ties U-V resistant?||Probably not. Chuck taped the tops of the rails and spray-painted the ties. Paul keeps his track covered.|
|What happens when it rains?||Everything on the layout gets wet, and therefore clean.
O-scale trains are not designed to get wet. We store our trains indoors when we're not running them but leave track, buildings, and, of course, plants outdoors.
|Do you bring it all indoors for the winter?||No. The track stays outdoors all year long.|
