  • Location: Rutherford Ambulance Corps Meeting Room, 44 Ames Avenue, Rutherford, N.J.
  • Admission: FREE
  • Parking: FREE (directly across the street)

The New York Society of Model Engineers was founded in the early part of the 20th century and incorporated in 1926. The Society is the oldest model railroad club in the US and possibly the world. Located within their 5,000 square foot headquarters in Carlstadt, N.J. are two large “HO” and “O” scale model train layouts, a fully equipped machine shop, and large library. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in model trains, or just trains.
