Garden Trains, Spring 2002

The Freight Train

We have but three fulls-size freight cars: two 40' boxcars and one 40' reefer.  Here we are running a small freight with CNJ boxcar, Stewart's Root Beer reefer and small caboose.  The locomotive is the Rogers 2-4-2 tank engine.  All are from Aristocraft.  

One of the joys of our railway is the variety, however small, of trains we can run.  Each type has a different effect.  There are the consist of small, narrow-gauge cars in our Brick hauler, the medium-sized blue coaches of our passenger train, and the tall, long boxcars for our freights.  Last but not least, the consist of small cars for the battery-operated toy train.  Each brings something different to operations here.

Our freight passes the station and windmill.

Here's the freight entering the crossover.  The small Rogers 2-4-2 tank engine is a pleasure to run.

Passing the Brickwell.  Station and windmill are in background

Through the Rocks at the far end of the garden

Our small train runs close to the Brickwell on the inside track.

Coming around the bend, past the little "whistle stop" station.
