Garden railroads first appeared in Europe in the mid-1800s and were simply model trains outdoors, a novelty of the well-to-do. In the late 1960s, Lehmann Gross Bahn (LGB) began manufacturing trains designed for outdoor use and introduced garden outdoor railroading. The hobby has expanded to countries around the world.
Garden railways combine the hobbies of gardening and model railroading.
