July 19th 2014 Meeting - Monday, July 14, 2014
Hello Utah Garden Railroad Society

The summers is already half over, and we have so much to do yet. Saturday July 19th we will be holding our monthly third Saturday meeting. This one will be special in that it will include a mini garden railroad tour of three layouts in Utah County.

The meeting will start at Floyd's home. Floyd has been working hard on additional improvements to his back yard layout since we met at his home last summer.

By 10:30am we want to get on the road to Jon’s home. Jon is the founder of the UGRS and has a beautifully detailed layout in his back yard. It’s always a lot of fun to see if you can locate all of the details he has catalogued.

By 11:15am we want to be traveling to Brandon’s home. Brandon is in the final stages of construction on his railroad of installing trestles and a pneumatic control system for his switches. His layout also features mountains and carefully laid code 250 rail. Brandon’s layout is especially a must see for those who are in the process of planning or building their own backyard railroad. Drive instructions are included in your e-mail. If you didn't get the e-mail, please let someone in the club know and we can get you on the club e-mail list. read more ...
