Through a fence

hi all,

I'm ready to cut a passageway through a cedar fence that will enable me to run my trains into a secure side yard for storage and I thought perhaps some of you would share images of similar projects or provide any insight. It will be a single track and the fence in question is the usual cedar type except that it is faced with pickets on both sides. Will cuttimg the bottom horizontal support in the fence jeopardize its integrity? Should I try a hinged door or something else to keep out the skunks? Any suggestions or images would be appreciated.

Have you considered adding another stringer or 2 to "frame" the opening. Like putting in a header for a window or door in a building. Maybe a "out of scale" portal? I used a magnetic doggie door for access to my power shed to keep small critters out and that has worked so far. Cats have no issue climbing/jumping my 8' block wall. So far coyotes haven't dropped by but that is probably because of the big dog rather than height of fence.
