The Rose City Garden Railway Society proudly invites you to visit the beautiful Pacific
Northwest and see our layouts.

are focused on Self-Guided Tours of Open Houses. We provide our Visitors with a
Tour Book, which include a daily schedule, maps, photos and descriptions of our layouts.
These can be obtained through the mail or our on-line registration, and will be delivered
by June 1st. There are no “Host hotels” or Tour buses. Under the Resources tab
you will find links to the local Visitors Information sites in the Portland Metro
area. Additional Salem Area Pre-Tour on Thursday, June 27th will be included in the

Books have been mailed to those registered.
