   The Southern Arizona Society of Model Engineers

Welcome to SASME

The Southern Arizona Society of Model Engineers -- SASME -- is a model railroad club located in Tucson, Arizona.

 

We began promoting the hobby of model railroading in 1954. We've had several locations over the years, but in 1985 we moved into our present building. 

 

The club's HO layout is the Tucson and South Western Railroad, nicknamed The Cactus Route. It interchanges with the McNary and Crown King NGRR, a narrow gauge HOn3 line. 

 

We meet each Wednesday night at the club's building at 6:30. 


 

Business Meeting -- The first Wednesday of each month is the club's business meeting. 


 

Work Nights -- The second Wednesday is dedicated to layout work.

 

Prototype Operations -- The last Wednesday is prototype operations night.

 

Run What You Brung -- The remaining Wednesdays each month are for open running of trains. See the Railjoiner for this quarter's schedule.
