Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.

 about us 

Great River Valley System


GRVS is the Twin Cities, Minnesota premier N-scale club utilizing both the N-Trak and T-Trak standards. We exhibit in about 15 shows a year all over the Midwest. In addition, GRVS itself puts on two shows each year:

Westminster Train Show
Great Minnesota Train Expo

Join us at one of our meetings, meet the gang. The only requirement is a desire for railroading, small and large.

This Month's Meeting

September 13

The monthly meetings start up again at the Shoreview Library. We will be discussing potential changes to the club structure and would like everyone's input. If there's only one meeting you can attend this season, this is the one.
