Trains Made Exclusively for Hobby Clubs and Organizations

Southern California S Gaugers Train Club

Our mission is to promote S gauge, set up a network of S-gaugers in the Southern California area, and help club members with their modeling. The club started with eight members and currently has almost fifty members. Dues are $10 a year. The club is an informal organization and meetings are held at member’s homes who volunteer to host the meetings. Meetings are generally held the second Saturday of each month.


The club membership is comprised of hi-rail and scale and narrow gauge operators as well as collectors.  A number of the club members have home layouts which are displayed at host members meetings.


The club supports a modular layout. There are eleven club members who have modules and four club corner modules.

Custom Trains

Like our earlier Karo Syrup tank car, our latest club car, a Green Bay and Western refrigerated car with opening doors, was originally only made by Gilbert in HO gauge, but was never available in S-gauge. Now it will be.  Lionel LLC, by special arrangements with the Southern California S Gaugers Club, will be producing the Green Bay and Western reefer.

Each person ordering the car becomes a "special member" of the club. Included in the membership is admission to the Club's S Fest West 2013 event to be held May 3-5, 2013 in the Los Angeles area and a door prize ticket only for those who actually attend the show.  The S Fest West 2013 Saturday night banquet features guest speacker Don Heimburger, publisher of the S Gaugian, as well as several other well known S personalities.
