About Us

The Wisconsin Garden Railway Society (WGRS) was formed in November 1990. The WGRS is an informal organization of individuals and families primarily in the Wisconsin area who share an interest in Large Scale Trains and Garden Railroading. We meet nine or ten times a year, usually from Noon to 3:30 in the afternoon of the fourth Sunday of the month, generally at members’ homes. Programs include “How To” demonstrations, “Show-and-Tell”, layout construction and of course train operations on the host’s layout.

Members are from every walk of life and express their varied interests through their approach to the hobby. Many have permanent outdoor “in the garden layouts”, some have extensive indoor layouts, some do not have their own layout and only run at another members or at one of the many shows we do, and some come with only their interest in trains.

All are Welcome!!
