Happy Spring Utah Garden Railroad Society
We will be having our April meeting on Saturday April 16th, 10:00AM in Springville UT. at Jons home. Jon and his father were the founders of the Utah Garden Railroad Society. Jon was our president for a number of years and has always taken a vested interest in keeping the club going. Jon has a nice railroad in his yard and has had lots of visitors, particularly from a near by elementary school. The theme for this meeting will "Bringing your outdoor railroad out of hibernation".
As a side note for those who are in the process of building their railroads up, Floyd is planning to sale his home in Spanish Fork and is looking to liquidate a portion of his extensive G-scale railroad to include engines, rolling stock, buildings and track. Anyone interested in purchasing any items for their collection are welcome to view and purchase items at Floyd's home following the meeting at Jon's. Floyd's home is about a 10 to 15 minute drive from Jon's. read more ...
Hello Utah Garden Railroad Society
Yes we're going to have a meeting this month, but first I'd like to thank everyone that helped out at the Hostler Train show in Ogden last week. The show was a hit and we felt like we got quite a bit of traffic on Friday and Saturday. Sunday was lighter but that's not unusual. Especially like to than those who were there on Friday to set-up and those who were there on Sunday to help tear down.
I'm looking for someone to host our April 16th meeting. Give me a call if you have any ideas. Lynn N. and I are still accepting dues.
Now about our meeting this month, it's going to be held Saturday the 19th, at 10:00 AM. This meeting was arranged for us by Neil Blosh to be at his cousins in Sandy. Neil has been working with John the last 4 years building a beautiful in door G-Scale layout. I could go on and on about the features of this layout but needless to say you will not be disappointed. read more ...
