We are artists, accountants, airline pilots, architects, teachers, students, families with children, and much more. But we all share one thing in common – A love of trains, and the enjoyment of building and running them, especially outdoors in our gardens.
Denver Garden Railroad Society includes all types of garden railroaders from people just starting to experienced hobbyists that enjoy sharing their hobby and enthusiasm.
We Invite anyone who shares a love of trains, or wants to learn more about them, to join our organization. See membership information at Denver Garden Railway/Join or ask any of our members when you see them at one of our local events, or at the Colorado Railroad Museum.
Founded in 1979, we are the oldest, and one of the largest regional garden railroad clubs in the nation.
