On this Thanksgiving, we want to share our genuine appreciation for all of the support you have given us over this past year. With no doubt, it has been one of the hardest and busiest years in the 87 year history of the Baltimore Society of Model Engineers and without this support,it's hard to know if we would have survived it all as an organization. Better than just surviving, with your support and the dedication of our hard working members, the BSME is thriving.

We are excited to share we are opening our doors for the Holiday season once again beginning Sunday, December 1st in a new, temporary location on the retail level of One Charles Center at Charles and Fayette in Downtown Baltimore. This pop-up show will feature a brand new HO Scale layout that we have built over the past two months, our interactive Timesaver modules and an On30 loop as well as special visits by Santa himself and a variety of food vendors over the next month and a half.​

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
