I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

I'm looking for some guidance -

My husband and I have a garden railway and this spring I have finally started working on making some of the scenery for it. The buildings are made from jig stone castings in cement, and some of the animals/people will be fimo. What section should I post photos of the buildings?

And while we're on the subject of the railway - I'm making my own steam engine and an engine out of Tin....where should I post about those? Cheesy

My personal opinion I'd put the buildings either in Home: outside or miscellaneous, but the train might go in Toys. But I might consider the whole thing and put everything related to the project in Home: outside, with an overview statement to say that although it fits in other places as well, it's part of this project.

Feel free to disregard my opinion: it's only worth what you paid for it!

LOL!

Thanks. I don't really know if the trains belong in toys, only because there is no way you would give one of these to a child to play with - they're fired with meths.  But i like your idea of putting it all as "outdoors" with the disclaimer that things might fit in other areas, but they are used in the garden or something like that.

Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening, Miscellaneous or Toys is fine.  Even if it's not something a child plays with, it counts if it's something you play with!  Wink

Thanks!  I don't have much to post yet, but when I do... Wink

I have the same problem with the dollhouse stuff I do -- not anything you would give a kiddo, lol!  I end up in Miscellaneous most times.  Grin

And I can't wait to see the steam engine!  Mr. Jivvy is a big time steam guy (he machined an engine from scratch -- not a train engine though) and is totally fascinated with all things steam powered.

it's going to take me a looooong time, but for now, here's some video of one of our (bought) trains:

Thanks for those links!  I understand the time it takes -- there's always something to be done. Wink

But it looks like you have a great setup -- can't wait to see what you do with it.
