Tulsa Garden Railroad Club

Tulsa OK, USA

About Us

The Tulsa Garden Railroad Club was founded in January 1997. Its purpose is to encourage and broaden the knowledge of large scale garden railroad activities. It is open to anyone interested in large-scale outdoor or indoor model railroading.

Our business meetings begin at 6:30pm on the last Thursday of each month. They include all necessary club business and special committee reports. Short programs will usually precede this. There can be a “show and tell” in which a club member will “show off” and explain a large-scale railroad related item. Then a speaker will present a short program with a “how to” segment. This could range from wiring, track laying, gardening ideas for your layout, or perhaps problems encountered in construction or modifying a model kit.

In addition to the regular monthly meetings, individual club members can host an open house. The open house enables club members to visit an actual operating layout or to see them under construction. The Club also holds periodic clinics and workshops. Local events are supported through the display of our ground track and or modular layouts. This allows members to display and operate their privately owned trains before the public.

Membership in the TGRRC is open to anyone with an interest in trains and garden railroading. Individual memberships are $25, and family memberships are $30. Associate memberships are $15. Corporate memberships are $250.00. All memberships are per year, January - December.
