Since its founding in 1988, the Sacramento Valley Garden Railway Society has helped garden railroaders enjoy their back yards even more with large scale trains running through them. Sounds of trains running through loops of greenery enhance the entire garden experience.
We now have members in Butte, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Sacramento, San Joaquin and Yolo Counties. We always welcome new members, and are able to spare you mistakes that we have all made. Join the club and take part in this incredible hobby!
SVGRS members enjoy the opportunity to particapte in the social aspects of garden railroading all year around. Our typical schedule includes monthly meetings at member’s homes, open house railroad tours around Sacramento Valley, a fall BBQ, a December potluck, January dinner, February clinics, as well as numerous public events where we setup our modular table.
We also have work days to help each other out, exclusive G-scale equipment swap meets and sales to members, members-only articles, and numerous tools and resources to borrow. Join the club today!
The 2016 National Garden Railway Convention (NGRC) is being hosted by the Bay Area Garden Railway Society (BAGRS). The Redwood Empire Garden Railway Society will be offering pre-convention layout tours on July 2 and 3, and we will be offering post-convention tours in the greater Sacramento area on July 11, 12, and 13. There will also be clinics and a vendor hall at the Santa Clara Convention Center, and special events in the surrounding area.
