Garden Railways and the British summer

With reports that B & Q have 300,000 unsold BBQ's in stock I was wondering if any British forum members here have actually purchased a garden railway set up since the Model Rail feature back in April?

And if you have how are you managing?

Do your embankments resemble those of the Severn Valley Railway right now?

And have any incumbant garden railway modellers actually managed to operate so far this summer?

Happy modelling

That could be a possibility - because I leave one loco out on the tracks 24/7 I leave it powered up all the time (22v @ 5a) with the lights on - just enough to keep damp out of it, bearing in mind we have the worlds supply of snails in the back garden we don't seem to have this problem on the track !
