Railway Garden

The Railway Garden is an outdoor g-gauge model train garden that tells the amazing story of America’s steam engine history and its impact on the U.S. Civil War, expansion west and the industrial revolution.

The Railway Garden is open for plant-viewing April through October from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Trains run May through October on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (weather permitting).

Large groups may request the trains to run if visiting during an off-day by arranging with the Gabis Arboretum office no less than one week prior to your visit. We will accommodate your request to the best of our ability.

Trains do not run in inclement weather, including strong winds. If the weather is questionable, call 219-462-0025 to verify.
