Christchurch Garden Railway Group promotes the modelling of railways, of
any prototype, in a garden setting.
Some railways are fitted into established gardens , while others
have the gardens formed around the railway.Most garden railways are
established on 45mm gauge track and the locomotives may be track
powered, battery powered or live steam. Radio control is, in most cases,
the norm, while many still run with track power. The pictures on this
