    Built a marine railway for my backyard aqueduct. I welded it together from bedframes; it's a portable design so I can carry it to the stream behind my house for sailing as well.

    Man you are just too talented and creative! How did you get started doing all this? Bet you had trains when you were a kid.

    Pretty sweet!
    Once my pond is better established, I would like to install a garden train around it.

    thanks, I've always like gardens, waterways and trains so this sort of came together for me; I hope to install a waterwheel for the watergarden next

    Se18 something tells me you may have missed your calling building miniatures for movie sets (unless you have done this), always look forward to your posts sharing your awesome back yard. Still love the aqueducts!
