North Carolina’s largest outdoor garden railroad layout features a variety of vintage, modern and historic G-gauge trains on 16 separate tracks covering more than 2,500 linear feet. Also features a colorful children’s play train set on the Southeast corner of the Town Greens, between Main and Burke streets, Gibsonville.

Bonus trains run during Gibsonville’s annual October Fall Festival and holiday Lighting of the Greens in November.

The GGRR was founded in 1996 by the late Bobby Summers, a retired Freight Conductor on the Southern Railroad. The layout is arranged to represent Gibsonville in 1855 and 1922 and also includes North Carolina landmarks from Blowing Rock and Pilot Mountain to Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
