"Growing Trains in the Garden"

The Rose City Garden Railway Society of Portland, Oregon promotes and practices the hobby of Garden Railroading. Whether you are a long-time hobbyist or a recent enthusiast, we welcome you to join us in planning gardens, building stock and scenery, running trains and, sharing lore and expertise.

We have members with experience ranging from years spent building and operating garden railroads, to those planning their first garden and running their first trains.

You do not need to have a garden railroad or even own any garden railroad equipment to participate in our club. Joining the club is your opportunity to see and run on other club member railroads to see if you like the hobby, with no commitment other than to join and attend some club activities.
