Bay Area Garden Railway Society
 


WE LOVE BUILDING AND RUNNING OUR GARDEN RAILROADS AND VISITING OTHER MEMBERS' GARDEN RAILROADS!

A Garden Railroad is a model railroad in a yard/garden with

real weather/plants/rocks/sounds and, yes, hazards, like gophers!

AND YOU CAN JOIN US - NO GARDEN RAILROAD REQUIRED - AND ENJOY:

OUR RICH VARIETY OF RAILROADS

We are one of the oldest and the largest garden railway society in N. America. Our members have a potpourri of railroads - steam powered, track powered and battery powered - compact to extensive - complex to simple - extensively to lightly planted. Some members just enjoy other members' railroads, a sample of which appear in our slide show above.

A WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT

We are a friendly group. Some members have been with us for 30+ years, many for just a year or 2. Some are families, some individuals. Some are building their first railroad, while others are nationally recognized modelers. New members are warmly welcomed and are the recipients of as much advice about garden railroading as they can absorb! 

LOTS OF ACTIVITIES & NEWS

 We have  a Spring to Fall schedule of open railroad weekends across the Bay Area. We have swap meets a couple of times a year. Our 'live steamers' take their show on the road several times each year.

  During the year we publish a monthly, extensive, on-line newsletter and also play a leading role in an INTERNATIONAL MAGAZINE - Garden Railroading News

THE 2023 NATIONAL GARDEN RAILWAY CONVENTION

We are hosting the national convention for the 6th time in July 2023. It's a busy and exciting time.

In just one week more than 70 Bay Area garden railroads will be open, more than 30 clinics will be delivered and more than 40 vendors will be sharing their products. This is a such a great time for new members to get a fast introduction to Garden Railroading. Click this link learn more about the 2023 Convention http://www.NGRC2023.org
