Creative Axline Mountain Railway

Originally built in the 90s and last shown 7 years ago, this totally reconstructed garden railroad with a new track plan now contains approximately 600 feet of new track spread over four separate loops all within the 3000 square foot garden, much of which includes scale plantings.  Nine bridges/trestles and three tunnels allow the trains to negotiate the landscape.

The layout is quite innovative and uses the soil excavated from the construction of the swimming pool to create the hills, canyons, and scenic breaks.  Additionally, the faux-rock swimming pool is fully integrated into the railroad with two of the bridges spanning the water cascading into the pool.  There is also a new Gazebo that allows people to socialize at the center of the action.  There is also new workshop and storage facility that allow quick placement of the trains.  As an added bonus, don't miss Donna's prize rose garden.
