Welcome to Tate Depot Model Railroaders

Take a tour with us!

The Tate Depot Train Society presents a track view tour of its HO scale model railroad. This model railroad was recently donated by a gracious contributor, and was moved to the Tate Georgia Depot by a group of dedicated model railroaders. The layout is available for public viewings and for children’s educational tours.

Tate Depot Train Society

The model railroad club operates as a Standing Committee of the Tate Depot Train Society, a 501c(3) tax-exempt organization. The Society is organized to further the understanding that railroads played in the development of the marble industry in Pickens County Georgia and to provide education and guidance in the historical preservation of the Tate Depot.

The Society accepts donations of funds, railroad historical items, and model railroad equipment for the purpose of furthering its goals, and as a means of generating support revenue.
