The Central New York Large-Scale Railway Society is the result of two different clubs in the Syracuse area joining together to become one to better serve the desires of all. The first club, founded in 1989 by Roger Caiazza, was The Central New York Garden Railway Society. This was the original, and only, garden railway club in the area with 17 members who devoted their time to garden railways. The second club was founded by Lou Duffy in 1992. This was the Central New York "G" Scale Modular Club (the only modular large-scale club in the area with 11 members focusing on modulars and taking them to train shows). The two clubs merged in 1998 and now direct their efforts to 7 months of garden railroading and 5 months are devoted to an indoor train layout at Burdick's Driver's Village in Cicero, New York.
