This event will feature 8 layouts open on Saturday with a BBQ and miniature steam train rides in the afternoon. Sunday there will be 12 layouts open from 10am 'til 4pm. The open layouts cover the full spectrum of Garden Railroading. There will be layouts featuring Live Steam, Battery Power and Track Power. There will be large layouts and small; brand new layouts open for the first time and some layouts that have been open many times before, like mine! The owner of Custom Model Products will be showing his layout and products and Nancy Norris of Garden Lines and Garden Railways Magazine will be demonstrating a new layout that she built. The owners of Garden Railroad Supply Company will be running AirWire controlled and battery powered locomotives on their large layout on Saturday. This is one event that you do not want to miss!

It looks like we will have about 9 new layouts open for viewing! Also, it was just announced that JUST TRAINS in Concord, CA will be giving tour members a 10% discount on any Large Scale purchase during the MEGA Weekend. The store is right near many of the Saturday Open Houses.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area and you are not a member of the Bay Area Garden Railway Society , NOW is the time to Join!
