More Information on our Model Railroad Shows

Dear Friends,

Garden State Northern Model Railway needs your help. We have had our annual show for the last 25 years. Months of planning go into the show and years of work have gone into building the layout.

Our annual shows help us continue our club’s mission of continuing to share and keep alive the history of local railroads.

About Us

From its humble origins in a garage in Paterson in the early 1950s, the Garden State Model Railway Club has established itself as a leader in HO model railroading in the Northeast. The Club’s history of creativity and innovation in building and operating model railroads have been attracting serious hobbyists for decades, as well as the parents and children who throng to its Open Houses. Now, the Club has entered a new phase of growth, attracting new younger members, and it has set ambitious expansion plans for what will be two permanent layouts at its North Jersey headquarters.

The GSMRR currently operates the Garden State Northern, an HO-scale railroad with over four scale-miles of track, at its home at 575 High Mountain Road in North Haledon, NJ. The existing layout has been revised and im- proved on an ongoing basis for almost three decades. It recreates the location and operations of the railroads of North Jersey during the transition era of the 1950s, with accurate depictions of industrial operations and urban and rural scenery.
