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.
   Our club donated and maintains a small display layout at the Steam Institute in Owosso, Michigan. SMSG members have also constructed a large display layout and purchased a trailer to store and transport the sections to local train shows and conventions.
