Garden Railroading

Recommended Posts

It's been around for awhile starting in Germany, back in the early 1970's, and becoming more popular across the world in the 21st century. Garden Roads are a cool hobby, and it's a bit safer than hopping freights, although sometimes one wants a little extra excitement and danger in their lives.


Anyway, there is a dedicated YouTube page to Garden Railroads in Minnesota, run by the Minnesota Garden Railway Society. You can see cool videos of these garden trains there:



For those that are curious, Garden Railroads, or "G-Scale" is about twice the size of the familiar O-gauge Lionel model trains that many had as kids growing up. The track is two-rail with about 1-3/4" width between the rails. It is the largest of the model electric trains, and the smallest of what is consider "Large Scale" trains.
