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!
