WE LOVE BUILDING, RUNNING AND SHOWING OFF

OUR GARDEN RAILROADS!

AND YOU CAN JOIN US ; NO GARDEN RAILROAD REQUIRED


A RICH VARIETY OF RAILROADS

We are one of the oldest and largest garden railway societies 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 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! 

ACTIVITIES & NEWS

(When COVID allows) we have a Spring to Fall schedule of open railroads across the Bay Area. We have swap meets a couple of times a year. Our 'steamers' take their show on the road. An annual meeting is a chance to catch up on plans for the coming year. During the year we publish a monthly, extensive, on-line newsletter and also play a leading role in the national Garden Railroading News digital magazine which is shared with our members.

NATIONAL CONVENTIONS

We've hosted the National Garden Railway Convention five times, and are scheduled to host it again in 2023. The video above was shot during the convention we hosted in 2016.
