The Southeastern Michigan S Gaugers
14' x 36'

The Southeastern Michigan S Gaugers (SMSG) display layout measures 14' x 36', is fully sceniced and includes highly detailed urban, rural and industrial scenes. The club-built layout features over 60 kit-built, modified and scratchbuilt structures. Multiple trains representing all aspects of S gauge modeling can be operated simultaneously using a variety of control systems including the latest wireless technologies. The layout has been displayed at shows and conventions for several years and was awarded "First Place - Module By Group" at the 2012 National Train Show in Grand Rapids, MI.
