Railways in your Garden
Garden railways have seen a major revival in recent years, as more and more people have come to recognise that building a model railway in the garden is one of the most satisfying and diverse hobbies it is possible to find. An outdoor railway in a pleasing garden setting can be an activity involving all the family as well as a joy to contemplate.
There has long been a need for an up-to-date introduction to the hobby. Railways in Your Garden has been devised to meet this demand by providing a general source and reference work into which readers can dip, as their knowledge and layouts grow, for advice, information and enjoyment. The emphasis is on what have become known as the scenic scales - G scale and 16mm - and on lines integrated with their surroundings.
Compiled by a team of expert garden railway modellers, the text looks at such subjects as planning, construction, trackwork, steam, battery and electric motive power, as well as suitable plants. The numerous photographs, including many in colour, give visual inspiration on how to create or develop your own garden railway -probably the closest you can come to the real thing!

Most orders are dispatched within two-three working days of receipt of cleared payment. If there is going to be a significant delay (more than 10 working days), we will contact you and, where possible, give you an estimated dispatch time.
Please be aware that advance orders will be sent as soon as the relevant book has been published.
When placing your order, please ensure that you add the correct full shipping address to your order. This includes house number, street name, zip code/post code. If parcels are returned on account of an incorrect shipping address we will contact you to seek the correct address and also ask that you pay a contribution towards posting the parcel to you a second time.
All orders over £20.00 are post free to all UK addresses. For orders of £20 or less, a £1.50 postage fee will be added. These are normally sent via Royal Mail 48 Hour (the business equivalent of 2nd class mail) which is not tracked. If you require tracking for your, tracking options are available for a small fee. If the service that you require is not shown, please get in touch with us and we can quote for your desired service.
Large, bulky or high value orders may be split in to multiple consignments or sent via courier. There is no additional charge for this and you will be advised at the order fulfillment stage if this happens.
Overseas orders are charged based on weight, and postage will be automatically calculated at checkout. For a postage quotation, please add the items you want to your cart and proceed to the checkout. All orders are usually sent via Air Mail - this is not tracked. If you required your order to be tracked or sent by a different service, please contact us, preferably before checkout.
Royal Mail will only accept parcels up to 5kg in weight (2kg for Canada). If you are ordering multiple items that exceed these limits, please contact us first so that we can advise you of the appropriate shipping rate.
Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.
Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.
