Bay Area Garden Railroad

The Bay Area Garden Railroad Society’s waist-high track features live steam locomotives. These railroad engines are designed to be run in anybody’s backyard garden.

Live steam locomotives have a butane-fueled fire that boils water. The resultant steam is then used to power the pistons. This is the same technique full-size locomotives have used for 180 years. Many examples of old-time model steam locomotives will be seen running on the track, all the while puffing wonderful plumes of steam.
