 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

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