Our club was officially started in January 1994 by
the hard work of four families living in the Coeur d’ Alene/Spokane area. We wanted to form a club
where people with like interests in garden railroading could get together and have fun in sharing this great hobby with one
another and the public. We are a family orientated club because garden railroading involves
model railroading and gardening together. It has something to offer for both husband/wife and kids of all
ages. We meet on a monthly bases on the third Saturday of every month at a member’s
home, with the exception of December. Our meetings usually start at 11am and include a pot luck lunch,
a short meeting, a raffle, lots of train running on the host’s layout, and of course fellowship with each other.
Currently we have around 40 family members in our club, although they all don’t show up at every meeting.
Our membership dues are $20.00 a year for the entire family and a one time $5.00 fee
for each name tag. There are lots of benefits to becoming a member;
