How to Build a Backyard Mini Train Plans
These free plans are to show you how to build a miniature train and train track in the backyard.
Build the kids this backyard mini train and you'll share in the fun! Backyard railroading is a man-sized
hobby for all the family. Once you handle
the throttle of a midget engine and
feel the thrust of drivers on rails, ordinary
Lionel railroading becomes a spectator sport.
A passenger-carrying pike costs less
than you may think. It can give you
scope for as much or as little time and
skill as you care to invest. Like its tinplate
cousins, it can grow up along with
the children from year to year.
You don't need a big lot. One type of
track can be laid in a circle as small as
12' across. Interesting layouts can be put
on a city lot.
Here's what it takes:
A reasonably levcl space, preferably
at least 30' by 40'.
As much cash as a modest electric line would cost.
Ordinary garden and hand tools.
One or more children so that you
can claim that you're doing it for them.
