Where to find information about garden train ?
There are many books in English, so just a few will be cited
Note that Amazon US site propose reviews for all garden train books.
For building and structures
LGB catalogs and documents
It is required to get an old LGB catalog, you will find in nearly complete equipment list, including no longer manufactured equipments.
For wiring and installation, 148 Euros new, and from 60 Euros used, This is an old book (1987) but still remarkable and I really recommend to get one:
Champex-Linden (Germany) propose to download many catalogs actual and older. Old catalogs have a lot more details about wiring or other stuff, by example Explore the world of LGB (1998) ed 00559.
In USA, there is a bi-monthly Garden railway.
German site (available in english) propose a garden train database quite complete. There is also documentation to downlaod.
Aside well known forums, you also can find a small forum Continental Garden trains handled by an English who live in France.
Many films on Youtube are available
Extracts of the book 'LGB track planning and technical guide' (1987)
You find both technical advices and network examples. This is an old book but still a very good reference.
