About Us

MKGR, based in the greater Kansas City area, is a club dedicated to having fun and sharing information about the hobby of large-scale trains in the garden.

All Aboard

Railroad gardens are like visiting miniature worlds filled with bustling trains, small villages with hard working people, realistic landscapes with tunnels and bridges all in a natural environment. We enjoy creating and building train layouts of all sizes and shapes. Everyone likes to share information on all facets of this fascinating hobby of garden railroading. Usually on a monthly basis we come together around members' layouts to enjoy great food, conversation and view G scale trains running through the gardens.


  • Host monthly Gatherings in members' railroad gardens.

  • Attend National Garden Railway Convention and tour host railroad gardens.

  • Field trips to special events.

  • Set up train layouts at selected model train shows.

  • Present clinics of interest on large-scale trains and gardens.
