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 have the largest permanent display in the mid-Atlantic region, with 2500 square feet of steam and diesel freight and passenger trains as well as trolleys and interurbans running from the overhead wire. We are the oldest exclusively model railroad club in the United States and the third oldest modeling society in the world!

The BSME layouts and offices are located on the third floor of 225 West Saratoga Street, Baltimore, Maryland. Our downtown location is half a block from the light-rail station, and one and a half blocks from the Lexington Market subway station.

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
