Arizona Big Train Operators will again delight children of all ages with their Trains in the Garden Open House Tours this Spring. The tour includes 15 homes with G-scale backyard railroad layouts and an indoor display at Cardon Children’s Medical Center. The homes are located in the Phoenix area, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, Sun Lakes, Chandler, Gold Canyon and San Tan Valley. Displays will be open March 29 and 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
There is no charge to see these railroads, but Arizona Big Train Operators (ABTO), a 501C organization accepts tax-deductible donations. ABTO uses donations to promote garden railroading and to maintain the indoor railroad at the medical center. Check www.azbigtrains.org for details and exact locations.
