Over forty tons of rock was used to create this condensed Colorado landscape. A great diversity of plants, from dwarf conifer to rock garden miniatures “create” the garden. The water is recycled to the lower pond and up over the two waterfalls. The Garden Railroad is a popular attraction for Garden Railroad enthusiasts of all ages!

Constructed in the spring of 2000, the Garden Railroad features over 700 feet of “G” gauge railroad brass track, trestles, bridges, waterfalls, and a variety of plantings matching the scale of the miniature trains. Higher and lower loops allow two trains to run simultaneously--a diesel engine and a steam engine. A third rail runs a trolley on a short line. In 2011, Thomas the Tank Engine, Percy the Small Engine, and cars Annie™, Clarabelle™, Troublesome 1™ and Troublesome 2™ were added to our collection and run regularly.

The Garden Railroad was supported by funding from the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) and constructed by and through the generosity of Caboose Hobbies and the Mile High Garden Railway Society. Please note that this is a model railroad, not a ride for people or transportation around The Gardens.
