    My brother is in the process of having his garden landscaped. As a surprise for the kids, he is wanting to put one of those small trains in that small kids can sit on an ride around the garden (on actual track).

    I have no idea as to where you could enquire about such a thing.... and was wondering if any kind person in here could help/advise?

    Thanks,

    Gazza.

    There's a group of enthusiasts that run a miniature railway, 5" gauge I think, at Worden Park in Leyland - http://www.leylandsme.co.uk/

    They operate free to ride steam trains regularly and have a workshop there too where they build and repair the locomotives. It looks like you would be spending quite a bit to do this so perhaps a visit would be a good idea.
