Annual Summer Tour

Member Pages


The 2020 Summer Tour will be held on Saturday, June 20th.

(The Saturday before Father’s Day) 10 am to 5 pm.

Rain or Shine, there will be trains running!

The Rose City Garden Railroad Society showcases 8 to 12 club member layouts at their homes each year on our annual “Summer Tour”.

A booklet is published each year showing the railroads on the tour with pictures and descriptions.  
Directions are included, along with maps and suggestions for a great fun-filled day.

The booklets are sold at participating outlets for $10 and entitles a carload of people to attend all of the railroads on the tour.

This event has been listed several times by The Oregonian Homes and Garden as one of
their picks of the week for entertainment.  
This is a fun weekend activity for the whole family.  
Please come visit us.

You can view pictures of some of the layouts that have been open HERE.
