Train Wars: The Choo Choos Strike Back – Episode 1

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

My Web Site: modelrr.oakviewresources.com Part 1 – This has nothing to do with Star Wars but has everything to do with running trains. I’ve had a bunch of people ask me if I’d do updated high quality video of trains running on my layout. So here it is…. Music Notes: The music on this video was recorded using Sonar Home Studio Ver 6.0. The drums and keyboards were played on an M-Audio Keystation 61 ES and/or sequenced in the MIDI Editor. The basses used are an Ibanez RD500 and a Yamaha 270F. The acoustic guitar is an Alvarez AD70-sc and the electric a squire fat strat.

In the midst (back garden, spring 2008)

In the midst (back garden, spring 2008)

The rather scruffy upper end of our garden in Spring 2008 (2).

We were in the midst here of changing the top end of our garden from an unkempt bare patch to a terrace with borders. The Valrosa Cabin workshop (background) was quite new (2007) and here we are are just moving things into it after we’d painted the inside, put in the floor-covering and fitted the shelving. The decking and the block path to the cabin were also new. These were all the first steps in the plan for this part of the garden. The untidy area in front of the cabin had become a temporary dumping area for garden materials during the construction work, but was soon to become our upper terrace.

For those interested in seeing the gardening details better, go to Actions (top L) > View all sizes > Original. See also notes on picture. However, notes are not retained in downloaded versions of Flickr images.

(Details below currently being edited)

FEATURES
Decking – removable decking ‘bridge’ (recently completed by Acer Landscapes) over Middle Section of Garden Railway, öowere L. Ideally we’d have been able to make this a fixed bridge in stone but this would have meant having a step-up here in order to give full clearance for the trains.
Garden Railway (G-scale) – 45mm gauge G-Scale, based on Märklin-LGB system, parts and rolling stock, and own garden-sized civil engineering. Part of the Middle Section is visible here, lower centre and lower R where it joins the Upper Loop on the Upper (Railway) Rockery.
Path – leading to steps to Valrosa Cabin, L, newly laid in concrete block paving by Acer Landscapes.
Temple of Juno garden shed – only part visible is the singe white column of portico, far L. I made the columns made from a flag pole.
Valrosa Cabin workshop – in background L, fully insulated, built for us the previous year by Acer Landscapes. Although completed, we had to paint the inside and put floor covering in, before we could fit it out and move in (as we are doing here).
Water butt – centre R, supplied with rain water from roof of Valrosa Cabin, just behind.

PLANTS
Picea glauca var. albertiana ‘Conica’ (centre foreground).

OTHER DETAILS (also noted on photo)
‘Banks Cabinet’ drawers (ex-NHM – "Rosen Wanted") – L centre, stacked up during transfer from house, and about to be moved into Valrosa Cabin behind.

LOCATION DETAILS:
Country: UK: England
City: London
London Borough: Lambeth
District: West Dulwich, SE21
Altitude: 40m
Aspect: view is approx westward. Border on L faces N, so mostly in shade.

The rather scruffy upper end of our garden in Spring 2008 (1).

We were in the midst here of changing the top end of our garden from an unkempt bare patch to a terrace with borders. TheValrosa Cabin workshop (upper R) was quite new (2007) and here we are are just moving things into it after we’d painted the inside, put in the floor-covering and fitted the shelving. The nearer stone paths had just been realigned, and the block path to the cabin was also new. These were all the first steps in the plan for this part of the garden. The untidy area in front of the cabin had become a temporary dumping area for garden materials during the construction work, but was soon to become our upper terrace.

For those interested in seeing the gardening details better, go to Actions (top L) > View all sizes > Original. See also notes on picture. However, notes are not retained in downloaded versions of Flickr images.

FEATURES (also noted on photo)
Borders – on each side of the nearer part of the garden path and being re-done following the realignment of the path. Border on L has been reshaped and is being dug over and topped up with more soil. Border on R will become extension of Upper (Railway) Rockery and replanted.
Decking – removable decking ‘bridge’ (recently completed by Acer Landscapes) over Middle Section of Garden Railway, centre R. Ideally we’d have been able to make this a fixed bridge in stone but this would have meant having a step-up here in order to give full clearance for the trains.
Garden Railway (G-scale) – 45mm gauge G-Scale, based on Märklin-LGB system, parts and rolling stock, and own garden-sized civil engineering. Part of the Middle Section is visible here bottom L, laid on a temporary trackbase of loose cellular concrete blocks and awaiting realignment. Part of the Upper Loop is visible centre R on the Upper (Railway) Rockery.
Path (1) – of reclaimed York stone laid in ‘crazy’ style. L branch is a recent realignment of an older path. R branch is a new section of path, part of the access route to Valrosa Cabin (upper R). Both these bits of path had just been laid by Acer Landscapes.
Path (2) – leading to steps to Valrosa Cabin, newly laid in concrete block paving by Acer Landscapes, R centre.
Temple of Juno garden shed – centre, with shingled roof and white columns supporting portico, built by me in sections out of reclaimed timber ("Rosen Wanted") at a previous house, brought here and extended with portico. I made the columns made from a flag pole. Steve Cruse (joiner) hung the doors (architectural salvage), put on the cladding. Doors and portico awaiting paint.
Upper Rockery (Railway Rockery) – lower right, with evergreen and alpine planting, and Upper Loop of garden railway (just visible here), built myself of various kinds of stone in simulated geological structure.
Valrosa Cabin workshop – upper R, fully insulated, built for us the previous year by Acer Landscapes. Although completed, we had to paint the inside and put floor covering in, before we could fit it out and move in (as we are doing here).

PLANTS (also noted on photo)
Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Kosteri’ – a dwarf form of Hinoki cypress – young tree in foreground, front R.
Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Plumosa Nana’ – a dwarf form of Sawara cypress, lower R by path.
Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Squarrosa’ – a form of Sawara cypress, centre L immediately in front of Temple of Juno portico.
Cotoneaster frigidus – upper L.
Juniperus horizontalis – prostrate juniper, R, by Upper Loop of Garden Railway.
Picea glauca var. albertiana ‘Conica’ – dwarf white spruce, on R of decking section.

OTHER DETAILS (also noted on photo)
‘Banks Cabinet’ drawers (ex-NHM – "Rosen Wanted") – centre R, stacked up during transfer from house, and about to be moved into Valrosa Cabin behind.
