While we wait out the COVID-19 virus we were able to get our organization added to the amazon smile donation program. When you shop online at smile.amazon.com, amazon will donate money to us. If you already use amazon.com you only need to designate us as the charity you wish donations to go to and shop at smile.amazon.com. If you click the banner to the left you will be taken right to the designation page.


We did get the HO layout reassembled and trains running before having to close, but still have to put the buildings back on the layout.

Baltimore Society of Model Engineers

The Baltimore Society of Model Engineers is a model railroad club located in Baltimore Maryland, formed in March 1932. We are the oldest organization dedicated exclusively to model railroading in the United States and the third oldest modeling society in the world!

The BSME layouts and offices are now located on the third floor of 3500 Parkdale Ave, Baltimore, Maryland in the historic Woodberry neighborhood. We are short walk from the Woodberry light rail stop.


The society is always interested in welcoming new members, regardless of modeling skills. Part of the club's activities help beginning members to become skilled in all aspects of the hobby. We also have plenty to keep the experienced hobbyist interested and challenged. If you are interested in joining our historic organization check out the membership page for all the details
