How Can I Help? - from Family Garden Trains™When I got into garden railroading, several "old-timers" helped me figure things out and saved me from some mistakes. Since 1996, Family Garden Trains™ has been helping other beginners figure things out.
Twelve years later, many of you have benefited from our fact-based articles and planning tips. In addition, the hobby itself has given you many hours of enjoyment, as well as many new friendships.
If you would like to give back to the hobby, this article lists some ways you can, including ways that you can help us keep the hobby growing.
SupporGarden Railroading In Your Community
Consider these ways of giving back to the garden railroading community in your region:
Helping Family Garden Trains™ With Our MissionSince 1996, we have answered over a thousand beginner questions and published over a hundred free, professionally-written articles to help beginning and intermediate garden railroaders. Comments like "My garden railroad grew up on your web site" tell us we are doing something right.
We have also worked hard behind the scenes with professionals, manufacturers, and other hobbyists and writers to help each generation of beginners get the most useful products and the information they need to get started "on the right track."
In the meantime, we have identified and started supporting hobbyists that NOBODY else is supporting, such as global readers who are hundreds (or thousands) of kilometers from the closest hobby shop or fellow garden railroader. For many readers, Family Garden Trains™ is their ONLY reliable resource.
In other words, Family Garden Trains™ has helped grow the hobby, and has grown along with it. Here are some ways you can help us keep growing the hobby, in your neighborhood and around the world.
