This is my brother's partially completed 14-inch gauge backyard railroad. So far he has built 3 railcars and is planning to build an electric locomotive. Here he takes a ride on the firewood car, starting from the woodshed up by the house and coasting down through the yard into a woods at the bottom. Most of the route is downhill so once he reached the front sidewalk he just hopped on board and rode the rest of the way.
The rails are made from white oak and the ties are made of ash. Even the railcar's wheels are wood (also white oak).
