Spring does (more or less) seem to be with us, and our thoughts might well be on gardens as well as our trains - or of course combining the two, by running trains in the garden.
Well TCS member Fred van der Lubbe certainly believes in doing this and has kindly provided some links to videos of clockwork 0 gauge and 1 gauge trains running in his garden – clearly spring time! They are in gauge 1:
And in gauge 0:
- Hornby clockwork No 2 LMS loco with Pullman coaches
- Rame mécanique lithographiée LR Le Rapide avec locomotive à vapeur carénée (Gauge 0 tin litho streamlined clockwork toy-train made by LR - Le Rapide - in France)
- Chad Valley clockwork goods train in the garden
- Hornby MO and Type 20 clockwork trains in the garden
These are only a small selection of the videos that Fred has posted on YouTube (there are about 50 of clockwork trains alone) so enjoy! (But enjoy your own garden / trains as well.)
