37th National Garden Railway Convention – Day 5

The 2022 National Garden Railway Convention (NGRC) was held in the epicenter of railroading in the Rocky Mountain west – Denver, Colorado. The Denver Garden Railway Society hosted the 2022 event, which is the ninth national convention coordinated by the group.

Convention highlights included tours of over 50 garden railways through the metropolitan Denver and northern Colorado region, informative clinics, a convention hall filled with an array of hobby-related resources and special events. Throughout the entire convention, delegates had the opportunity to connect with old friends and make new contacts.

For those unable to follow our regular updates on Instagram during the convention, we wanted to share a few images from the event with you here.
