    BAGRS once again plans to have our Live Steam Oval set up at the Bay Area Maker's Faire. The Bay Area Garden Railway Society has a large and very active Live Steam Contingent and quite a few of our members actually build their own scale Live Steam Locomotives. We enjoy running our scale trains and showing them off and explaining them to the public. This is not a BAGRS sponsored event but many of our members participate. This is the oldest and largest of the Maker Faire events and is something we look forward to attending every year.

    • Near Felton in the Santa Cruz Mountains

    BAGRS once again plans to have our Live Steam Oval set up during the Father's Day Weekend up at Roaring Camp Railroads in Felton.  The Bay Area Garden Railway Society has a large and very active Live Steam Contingent and we love running our scale Live Steam Locomotives for the public. If you are attending this wonderful event, stop by and ask us questions and we will do our best to explain the wonders of our hobby. A highlight of the weekend is usually the Shay race where we race one of our scale Shays on our track against one of the full size Narrow Gauge Shays on Roaring Camp's track. Never a fair contest but always fun to try!

    This is not a BAGRS sponsored event but many of our members participate.
