15th Annual Rails in the Garden Tour


15th Annual Rails in the Garden Tour – March 3rd and 4th, 2018
(All layouts are open from 10am until 4pm both days)

Visit some or all of the 11 garden railroads throughout the Tucson area on a self guided tour.

There is no charge to visit the layouts. Cash donations to support the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and the Tucson Garden Railway Society’s community projects are accepted at each site.

All of the information you will need (maps/directions) to get around on the tour is provided at

Please check the web site before you begin the tour for any last minute changes.

Please note – For the most part, these layouts are at private homes
and therefore, public restrooms are usually not available.

The Tucson Garden Railway Society is an AZ 501(c)3 corporation that promotes model railroading, preservation of railroad history and railroad safety throughout the Tucson metro area.  As such, we have permanent displays at Diamond Children’s Hospital, The Tucson Children’s Museum, The Rodeo Parade Museum, Tucson Botanical Garden, and The Southern Arizona Transportation Museum. We have a large modular layout that we take annually to The Pima County Fair and the VA Hospital for multi-day displays. In addition we have a smaller children’s layout that we take to train shows and children’s charity events throughout the year.  In recent years, the Rails in the Garden Tour has generated over $7,000 in donations for the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona.
