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
Christmas and trains are a Baltimore tradition, unfortunately this year many holiday traditions are not happening. For those who are able and willing to venture out to see holiday train displays check out Grandpa's Holiday Train Garden Page for 2020 for the displays that are open. Of course there have been changes to how you can visit these displays this year:
