I have two LGB Garden Train sets and am planning an outdoor layout. I have no experience with model trains. I have books on model train layouts, but none address placing track in a driveway/roadway.
The most ideal layout for my home would involve track crossing about thirty feet of concrete driveway. The track will have to resist being driven across and parked upon. I also have to consider water collecting in the track as well as driveway dirt that may be washed into it.
I envision grinding out a groove in the concrete, or removing and repouring, so that the top of the track is level with the surrounding driveway and providing some hard rubber mat between and beside the track to take the weight. I do not have to contend with snow/ice.
Do any of you have or know of track set into a driveway? What experience have you had? Advice? Cautions? May I come look at yours? Do you know of any reference materials regarding tract set into roadways??
