I'm the current president of the BAY AREA GARDEN RAILWAY SOCIETY. We are located in the nine counties surrounding San Francisco Bay. We now have 279 member families making us one of the largest, if not the largest regional Garden Railway Clubs in the United States.
In 2011 BAGRS will be hosting the West Coast Regional Meet where we plan on having 50 garden layouts open for tour. I hope a lot of Mylargescale members can make it to the meet.
Sacramento Valley Garden Railway Society, Sacramento CA. We've got 100+ family memberships. The group has members in Sacramento, Yolo, Butte, Placer, El Dorado, Solano, and San Joaquin Counties in California, and a few in Reno and Carson City, NV.
The Rio Linda Train and BBQ Group Is a small group located in Calif. that try to run trains once a month when weather is good.. Most of our train runs are on Sat. nights.. Fun running in the dark after a big pot luck..

River City Railroaders,
Nebraska, Kansas,Iowa. We have about 40 members.
Just to expand a ilttle on what Don stated.
We have 40+ members with spouses included and they have taken an active role partissipating in the meetings.
There are also members as far as Illinois, and Lexington Ne. Of course they are considered "honorary" members, that show up when they can.
The majority of members are from the surrounding areas of Omaha, Counil Bluffs, Nebraska City, Lincoln, and all the surrounding communities in between.
And even members that have moved into this area from other states.
