Welcome to the Bristol S Gauge Railroaders!
The Bristol S Gauge Railroaders are dedicated to S scale (1/64 scale) model railroading. Formed in 1948, we believe we are the longest running S scale club in America! We are located in Eastern Massachusetts, and also have members in Southern Maine and New Hampshire.
Members are interested in most branches of S scale, including, but not limited to, Scale, Narrow Gauge (Sn3 and Sn2), Hi-Rail, and American Flyer operating and collecting. Our major goals are to learn from each other and have fun doing it.
New Members are Welcome! We are anxious to share the fun of building and operating S scale trains and layouts, as well as collecting trains and models. There is an application to join us here, or if you have any questions about the club, or want to get a message to any member, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

A Sad Note. On January 20, 2021 Bill Clark, a valued and well respected member of our club, passed away due to pancreatic cancer.
Bill had been a part of the Bristol club since 1996. His wealth of technical knowledge, his eagerness to try new methods, positive attitude, enthusiasm and interest in so many aspects of the hobby made it fun for everyone around him.
Soon after he joined the club, he became a pioneer in helping the club utilize DCC technology and assisted club members with DCC locomotive installations and repairs. He became our go-to technical expert and worked with many club members on their home layouts. His help on our last three NASG Conventions and committees was exceptional. He also became our Club Webmaster. Bill was a regular supporter at nearly all of our club train shows. We will fondly remember him sitting in his “director’s chair” inside the corner of our Club Layout during train shows as he made sure that things were running smoothly!
Bill was one of those club members who was really at the very heart of the club. His warm personality generated a positive attitude in every person he met. Bill encouraged people to join our club to learn and share various aspects of S-Gauge railroading.
Bill will never be apart from us; his fellow members of the Bristol S-Gauge Railroaders Club. We will all miss him greatly.
