About Us

The San Diego Garden Railway Society was formed in 1988 by a handful of enthusiasts who wanted to share information about the construction, operation and landscaping of garden railways. Currently we have approximately 100 family memberships.

Meetings & open houses are held monthly at a members home to see the layout, share information and visit with friends, old and new. There are occasional clinics given by knowledgeable members on a variety of topics. For several years the SDGRS members have also created and maintained an exhibit at the Del Mar (San Diego County) Fair.

Some of our members layouts have been featured in local and national magazines, HGTV and a variety of television programs. SDGRS offers a free monthly newsletter to members which provides information on events, train shows, conventions and more.

The San Diego Garden Railway Society’s main goal is to have fun. Members share their common passion of G Scale model railroading with like-minded individuals in a casual and friendly atmosphere. Whether you are new to the hobby or an experienced veteran, all ages are welcome and encouraged to climb aboard and join our enthusiastic group.
