    How often/many garden railroads, if any, do you guys see when out working? Do you guys even know what I am talking about? Here I am fixing a derailment on my garden railroad while it was open to the public during the 2002 National Garden Railway Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio...I am a long time member of the Cincinnati Garden Railway Society:cool2:

    And just so you don't think that a garden railway is only a season hobby, look again...:cool2:

    I agree but maybe a little bigger. Here in Scottsdale there is a Train Park, they have 2 tracks one small train pulls a bunch of cars that seat two adults per bench its a steam engine the other seems to be gas or diesel powered and it pulls about 18-20 people in a straight line one seat in front of the other, no real cars to speak of. I have a couple of clients that I could sell small train set-ups to if I had knowledge and a source. But they would have to be big enough to ride on, at least for small kids.
