History of WCGD

The Waukesha County Gandy Dancers Model Railroad Club is founded in the City of Waukesha, Waukesha County, Wisconsin. The club was located in the former Fox Head Brewery building on Maple Avenue.


Club Moves to Downtown Waukesha

WCGD moves to historic downtown Waukesha in the lower level of 831 N. Grand Avenue.

Layout is Made Permanent

Main layout becomes fixed in its location. It is approximately 20' x 50' and features scenic lighting for nighttime operations, as well as a real running water river.


WCGD Moves To Larger Location

The club moves across the street to a much larger location at 741 N. Grand Avenue. The layout is currently under construction and is set to be considerably larger than our previous layout.
