Welcome to the Whatcom Skagit Model Railroad Club
Formerly the Bellingham Society of Model Engineers

We've changed our name, but not our mission. The WSMRC (formerly the BSME) is a non-profit group which builds and operates layouts in multiple scales (currently HO-scale, N-scale, and 7.5-inch gauge).

The name change is in recognition of the fact that since moving from downtown Bellingham to our new home in Alger, Washington (about 14 miles south of Bellingham), we attract members and visitors from both Whatcom and Skagit counties. We meet every Thursday evening except holidays and frequently open the layout for public shows and demonstrations.

But remember that we're here every Thursday night, and there's usually something happening on the 7.5-inch gauge outdoor railroad every weekend (weather permitting).
