 About Us...
   In 1978 a small group of guys interested in 3/16 model railroading initiated the Southeastern Michigan S Gaugers.  The club was made  up of modelers from the metro Detroit area, focused on S gauge model railroading, both in scale and American Flyer.  Today, our  membership includes modelers, collectors (AF, hi-rail and scale), manufacturers and distributors.   In recent years the membership has  ranged from 40 to 45 members, coming from as far away as Western Michigan,The guys Northern Ohio and Ontario, Canada.
    Many of us trace our railroad interest back to the toy trains of the 1950s and 60s, building tinplate layouts from famous names like American Flyer, Marx and Lionel.
     We don’t limit ourselves to any one facet of the hobby.  Members build home layouts in scale, standard and narrow gauge, Hi Rail and American Flyer Tinplate.  As a club, we've built several modules, based on the S-Mod Standards, and display them at local railroad events.
    SMSG members have constructed a large display layout and purchased a trailer to store and transport the sections to local train shows and conventions.
