Are there any good active garden railway clubs/groups in the North Central Indiana area, I live in Kokomo, short drive from Indianapolis, and would love to get in a local or fairly local club for large scale trains. Thanks Mike
How far North of Cental Indiana ?
There is an active group calling themselves the IGRS located near Valparaiso Indiana.
The have an outdoor RR setup @ Samuelson's Nursery and have both Live Steam and Electric participants. www.ILLIANAROAD.com (Upper case for legibility)
There is a Club in Fort Wayne. I do not belong. They used to have a nice indoor layout in an empty store in the Southtown Mall. Fort Wayne torn the mall down and I think I heard they sold their layout to either someone from Muncie or the town itself. I believe they are now building a new layout in the Factory Outlet Mall near the Michigan border on I-69. Head on over to Watts and ask around. I'm sure Indy would have something.
If any of you are interested in a little larger size trains, I have 12" gauge and 14 1/8" gauge trains and track in La Porte, and I am always looking for others interested in trains this size, ... and a little help with maintenance, modifications, and operation, (or a place to run your equipment, or take your grandkids for a ride). merle, [email protected]
