The G&O will be a unique outdoor model railroad because it is being built as a public display. It will feature two gauges of trains — G gauge and O gauge 3-rail. G gauge is the most popular gauge for outdoor trains. Lionel and other companies popularized O gauge 3-rail early in the last century.
The outdoor layout will include waterfalls, beautiful natural scenery, soaring bridges, and an activity area where children can run trains.
Once built, the public will be able to enjoy watching and operating outdoor trains whenever the SLHRS Depot is open. Please visit our Contact Us page for our open hours and location.
We are looking for people to help build and operate the G&O including people who are primarily interested in the garden aspect of outdoor model railroading. If you are interested in lending a hand, please contact the lead on our G&O Garden Railway project, Joe Barker.
