In the garden which is installed after the track at the
standard gauge 1435 mm, a garden is presented along the wharf.
The construction was undertaken in 1992. The principle of construction was quite unique
because the track is raised as the real ie directly on the ballast. No other fixation have
been performed. Since then, the road has never moved. It thus follows the natural
expansion of the rails.
began in 1992
To prevent the growth of grasses and other garbage in the
ballast, the track was built on a mattress of 20 cm of gravel caught between two blocks.
The gravel is placed in a canvas asphalt, which prevents the rise in bad plants while
leaving water drip.
A ballast is deposited very end between the ties, blocking the path effectively.
The track is used LGB. The plan is simple path. A closed
loop on which s'embranche another loop longer. We will give the plan later.
5 needles are distributed over the entire network, which
runs on 50 lanes.
The station includes a plan very simplified way: 2 ways and
means of a heel. The building of the station comes from the mark LGB as rolling stock.
An electrical cabinet provided free of charge by LEGRAND is
ready to close and can order needles and cantons. The entire electrical installation
requires only a very few interventions annually.
The plantations include various perennials and annual
A small river leads to a lake. The idea is to pump water
from the lake to a higher weir to feed the river.
We commend the work of design, production and investment in
kind on the part of Christophe Turgis, member of the first hour of the museum and
passionate networks Garden.
