Welcome to the Garden
Open House information site
website originally started out to promote "G-Day" in the four-state area of Delaware, Maryland,
Pennsylvania, and New Jersey as garden railroaders opened their layouts to visits by the
public. In helping to promote the hobby, I have decided to
open this site up to use by anyone in the United States.
You are welcome to visit the layouts and see firsthand how the hobbies of
gardening and model railroading can be combined. There is usually no charge
but please keep children under control
at all times.
The calendar below
shows days that open houses are held. To find out if an open
house is in your are, place your cursor over a linked date to
display the states included on that date. Click a day to see what
layouts you can visit. Each layout listing includes a link to
Google Maps so that you can customize your driving directions, links
to more information or a webpage for each individual, if available.
