The track will run in front of a dry wall made of old red sandstone – but at this point it is about 200mm above lawn level. I needed to build up a base for it – and, because I like the look of this rough and crumbling wall, I decided to build a low wall between track and lawn in the same manner – creating a ledge along which the railway would run.
Step one was the build the dry wall. This turns out the be really quite tricky. Fortunately, the ramshackle look was what I was after.
Step two was to fill the cavity between the walls with the sub-base, and level ready to take the track.
