Summer Tours

The Garden Railway Open Home Tours

Every summer, The Denver Garden Railway Society presents “Garden Railway Open Homes“, where members host open house tours of their Railroads and Gardens. It gives members the opportunity to share their new, existing, or “under construction” railroads and gardens, and to see the Garden Railroads of the other club members. Tours are regularly held on the second weekend of the summer months.

The tours are by invitation to members and their guests, however, membership in DGRS  is generally open to anyone with an interest in Garden Railroading. There is no requirement to have or to own a Garden Railroad to belong to the club, or to attend a tour. For the small cost of a membership the open house tours provide a tremendous value and a great opportunity for the enjoyment of garden railroading!

Preliminary planning for 2024 Tours:

The preferred tour dates and Denver area designations are determined on a rotating basis each year. Club tours are normally planned the second weekend of the months, June, July, August, and September. The 2024 tours are tentatively planned as follows:

June 8 & 9, Southeast quadrant, South of Colfax and East of Santa Fe

July 13 & 14, Northeast quadrant, North of Colfax and East of Wadsworth

August 10 & 11, Northwest quadrant, North of Colfax and West of Wadsworth

September 14 & 15, Southwest quadrant, South of Colfax and East of Santa Fe

Members are always welcome to offer club tours on other dates of their own time and choosing.

Tour details will be provided to members in the Newsletter.
