Welcome to the


This web site describes the evolution of two electric railways. One is the "real" Ohio River Electric Railway, a trolley line that served the river towns of Meigs County, Ohio from 1900 to 1929.  The other is my garden railroad, a modest operation begun in 2004, which takes its name from the original trolley operation.

NOTICE TO ABANDON WAS FILED APRIL 27, 2016. Railway was dismantled in June.
