COLUMBUS GARDEN RAILWAY SOCIETY

 The Columbus Garden Railway Society (CGRS) is a unique,  organization whose goals are to have fun with garden railroading and the sharing of information. We have no formal organization, constitution or by-laws. We are simply an informal gathering of people interested in gardening and railroading. Our only rule is the 10-foot rule, which loosely translates to "If it looks good from 10 feet away, then it is good enough". 

Membership in the Columbus Garden Railway Society (CGRS) is open to anyone. While the name of our organization refers to garden railroading, ownership of a garden railroad is not necessary. Many of our members have a G-scale railroad in their garden or yard, others may have one in their basement or other room of their home, and yet others may choose to not have one at all. That is not important. What is important is that all of our members share a common interest in the hobby.

Benefits of Columbus Garden Railway Society (CGRS) membership include an informative monthly newsletter (sample newsletter), monthly meetings at host railroads, the multi-club tour, and the fall foliage trip. Meetings may include presentations or clinics on various aspects of modeling, gardening, railroading, electronics, or controls. Guests are always welcome.
