As he|she|it had promised to you, I present my small train exploitation here.
In these moments it|he|she is in full reconstruction, and the works are not at all very advanced. It can be said that the major part is still to construct.
My installation is in the terrace of my house|home, since I do not have garden.
In the beginning the circuit was an oval with a small branch that he|she|it entered into my house|home.
At present I am broadening. The only possible way to broaden was at two levels making an oval.
This is an outline of the primitive circuit:

Tel que promis, je vous presente ici ma petite exploitation ferroviaire
Au présent elle est en pleine construcción, et les travaux ne sont pas très avancés. On peut dire que la plupart est encore à construire.
Ma installation est dans la terrasse de chez moi, car je n'ai pas de jardin.
Initialement le réseau était un ovale avec un petit branchement qui rentrait chez moi.
Aujourd'hui je suis en train d'agrandir. La seule façon possible d'agrandir était en fesant un ovale à deux niveaux.
Voilà un schéma du réseau ancien:






This is a photography of the beginning of the reform.

These are some photographs of the ancient|antique circuit:

This is the project:

The name of the exploitation, Ferrocarrils de la Terrassa (Railways of the Terrace)

Wow, that viaduct is good, did you build it ?

¿Guau, ese viaducto es bueno, usted lo construyó?

Wouah, ce viaduc est-vous bon, l'avez-vous construit ?

Perhaps I've missed it but is this based on French or Spanish railways. I'd like to see more spanish railways on here.

Welcome Amadeu.

I think your railway and viaduct look excellent and I am very pleased we have a new Spanish member of CGT.

Than you for its|his|her|their praises.

I myself constructed the viaduct. The used materials are stone, cement, and tiles of mud in miniature, of the trade, Patrick. Later I will explain my technique.

Mikey, really I have inspired in the catalans narrow gauge railways. But they are not very different of the French.

Merci pour vos compliments.

Le viaduc c'est construction personnelle. J'ai utilisé des matériels comme des pierres, du ciment, et des petites briques miniature du commerce, Patrick. Plus tard je vais expliquer ma technique.

Mikey, en réalité je m'inspire sur les chemins de fer à voie étroite catalans. Mais ils ne sont pas très différents aux français.

As I do not speak English, it is difficult for me to explain you. Therefore I put the pics. As a matter of fact it|he|she is not severe, since the images speak by themselves.

It looks like a very interesting project, ‘Garden Railway on a Terrace’ could this be classed as hard landscaping?
A great viaduct, it will be interesting to see the construction method.

The construction method PART ONE

1 construction of the molds (porexpan)





2 positioning of the tiles









3 layer|cape of sand and putting the stones like in a puzzle









4 outflow|junket of cement





three or four days later, with the coagulated cement, he|she|it arrives the magical moment of removing the pieces from the mold

She is polystyrene, exactly.
The tiles are bought in commercial establishments. They are constructed in pottery, clay.

The construction method PART TWO

Construction of the basis





Assembly of the pieces



Filled in with cement



the arches





in detail



preparing everything to fill in with cement





proceeding



And here we have the almost finished work

Amazing viaduct!

Interesting videos seeing the progress and extensive construction.

I also clicked on a link and watched a great video about the Olot to Girona railway.

Really good and effective, where did you get the terracotta tiles from, there are very effective for edging the viaduct?
