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.

About Us

All Aboard

Railroad gardens are like visiting miniature worlds filled with bustling trains, small villages with hard working people, and 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 and conversation while viewing G scale trains running through the gardens.

  • Attend National Garden Railway Convention and tour railroad gardens.

  • Field trips to special events.
