Founded in the Garfield Park Fieldhouse in 1947 and moved to Clarendon Park in 1963, the Garfield Central Railroad is a little known treasure of the Uptown neighborhood and contains one of the largest model railroads in the country. Members of the Club meet regularly in the basement of the Clarendon Park Fieldhouse to build and operate this railroad. Highlights of the design include approximately 1,400 feet of hand-laid track, reliable operations and a state-of-the-art signaling system. The railroad travels through the fictional towns of Summit, Georgetown, Bridgeport, and Williamsport, set in the Appalachian Mountains.
