Our  gardens train display  evolved over several years. It started off with a track around a chestnut tree.

Eventually as more "little people" moved in, an English  village developed.

The buildings  and the main stone bridge are made from a lightweight building stone called hebel. 

To prevent them from sinking into the ground, the  buildings and the bridge piers stand on concrete footings. .

Most of the track used in our layout is AusRail brass rail and  sleeper bed together with LGB points and crossings, which  are very easy to lay.

The roads are made of concrete using quarter minus blue stone screenings in the aggregate and grey concrete colouring used to finish the surface.

To create an old world effect we made a latex rubber stamp with a cobblestone pattern. This was then used to stamp the wet concrete surface before it set, creating cobblestone style streets and  a cobblestone highway that doubles as a mower edging.
