"A world of miniature trains", that is how the Society of Model Engineers has been described. For the members of the nonprofit group dedicated to model trains it is even more. The members of the Society, located in Carlstadt, NJ, have a devoted love of trains and have joined together to operate a model train museum with two large model train layouts. Model trains will be operating on both layouts. Many of the models are one of a kind and were handmade by Society members. Members take pride in operating their miniature railroad just like real railroads operate. The members claim that the only exception to real railroad operation is they operate "On time, all the time!". Trains will be running continuously for everyone's enjoyment, especially the children, as Thomas and all his friends will be featured running on the train layouts .
The Society's 89th Anniversary Exhibition will be open weekends, March 7, 8, March 14, 15, March 21, 22 and March 28, 29, 2015 at its headquarters located at 341 Hoboken Road, Carlstadt, NJ.
