Welcome to the official site of the Gold Coast Garden Railway Society. We are a loose
knit group of modelers that share a common passion for building and operating model
trains on Gauge 1 track, otherwise referred to as Garden Scale trains or G-Scale.
Members usually have backyard layouts and model in a variety of scales including
1:20.3, 1:22.5, 1:24, 1:29, or 1:32. In addition many members also model the smaller
scales indoors as well as some who own and operate the larger riding trains. Many of
our members have been into the hobby for over a decade or more and are a great
source of information for novices or beginners in the hobby. The majority of our
members live in the coastal areas from Ventura to Santa Barbara with a few in the San
Fernando Valley and even as far out as Bakersfield so there is most likely an upcoming
meet near you. Typically we average one or two meets a month, weather permitting.
We are always looking for new members to join our club whether they are seasoned
veteran modelers or just getting started in the hobby. We are a family friendly
organization and welcome children of all ages to come and enjoy the hobby as we do. If
you are interested in learning more about the hobby or joining our club feel free to look
around for our site more information.
If you are interested in attending one of our meets, send us an email and we can
provide more information on how to attend.
