Tulsa Garden Railroad Club

Tulsa OK, USA


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.

Activities include a monthly meeting held at the Airport Free Will Baptist Church. These meetings feature a presentation, a short business meeting and refreshments.

We have 3 different layouts we set up at events in the area. A floor layout which can be large or small, the Mini Modules, and the Large Modular Layout which adapts to the space available.

The annual tour takes place in June, the day before Father's day, and members have their gardens open for public viewing.
