A Garden Railway in 1:20.3 scale
Updated April 26th, 2014
URL first established Dec 1996
The Ridge is located in Darlington,South Australia and represents a NE Oregon shortline in the late 1920s.
The original garden railway was built in Belair, SA and was operational from June, 1996 until 2009
The current location is in the small front yard of our lovely courtyard home in Darlington, a southern suburb of Adelaide
The current Ridge is tiny compared to the original and is just an oval of hand-laid track in an area of about 3 X 5 metres or 10 X 15 feet
The beauty of this current site is that it is elevated at one end to save my poor old bones from being down to ground level!
