WELCOME TO THE MIDWAY GARDEN RAILROAD
TRAIN MOUNTAIN'S BEST KEPT SECRET
Located only a half mile southwest of Central Station is the Midway Garden Railroad, a G-Gauge outdoor layout set on approximately 3 acres of land.

G-Ville contains an eighth of an acre pond which is surrounded by manmade mountains.
Volcanic rock line the pathway which leads you around mountains and over the stream that feeds the pond.
G-Ville, as it is called by the members of Train Mountain, was created by the husband and wife team of Dennis and Mort (Sharon) Ediger back in 2008.
Over 2000 feet of track has been laid by Mort and Denny at this garden railroad.
The track circles the pond, runs over bridges, trestles and runs through a tunnel. The tunnel is 12 feet long. They have 4 bridges, a 23 foot wood trestle, an 8 foot wood trestle, a 3 ½ foot wood arch bridge and an 18 foot steel girder bridge.
There is a 10 foot waterfall with a 50 foot river leading to the pond. There are several dozen G-scale buildings, both kit and homemade from various materials, included throughout the layout.
Large Ponderosa pine trees and Manzanita bushes with a natural squaw carpet are incorporated into this sprawling layout.
There is power to the track, therefore, all can bring their G-Scale trains to run, whether they be live steam, electric or battery powered. The Edigers run mostly E-8’s and Mallets.
The track is made of both stainless steel and brass, manufactured by Aristocraft and LGB. The maximum grade on the railroad is 3%, with a minimum mainline curve radius of 6 feet.
G-Ville is usually in operation for the first meet of the season at Train Mountain, weather permitting. If you have any question about this beautiful garden railroad, you can email Mort and Denny at firstname.lastname@example.org.
