We now are proud to announce that we have a new home!

The excitement is real, GATSME owns a building in Rockledge. It is a large open space with a high ceiling, plus a secondary building which will be our workshop. The possibilities are near endless and that is the real value in this property.

April 10th, 2014, the club signed the papers and took possession. Our planning process is now running at full speed. From the physical standpoint, we will be making many repairs and replacing many of the systems in the building. In order to build a model railroad museum, we need a nice environment for visitors, club members and our model trains.

You can help us reach our goal by making a contribution using the link below. In addition, we are looking for help in donated goods and services. GATSME is a not for profit corporation and donations are tax deductible. Stay tuned to this web site and the Museum site for updates.

Sunday Sept. 7, we participated in the Rockledge Car show.

Check back here for updates on our progress. There is much work to be done and we would like to have you join us.

July 4th, GATSME participated in the Rockledge parade.

We handed out brochures and buttons. We were well received with many people interested. A few people passed by the building after and asked questions and wished us well. Out neighbor out the back thanked us for cleaning up the yard next to his. Moving to Rockledge seems to be the best thing we ever did. Everyone is so nice here.

UP NEXT: Pointing of bricks outside and inside, repairing the drains in the main building and roof repair, are the next projects. Then, installing a bathroom, lights, and heat. Air condition would be nice but we need to raise more money to be able to afford that.
A committee has been formed to come up with a design for the new Railroad. Construction should begin next year.


We have created a DVD with movies and still photos of the Railroad from a perspective that you will never see standing in the aisles. The DVD sells for $15.

We are a group of railroad historians who are building a museum-quality representation of railroads in the 1950’s. Our members have studied architecture, geology, engineering, history and prototype railroads. The result is an incredible miniature world, to which our photo gallery cannot do justice.

Since 1975, GATSME has been located in the basement of the Old Fort Washington Elementary School on Madison Avenue.  Over the years, GATSME has upgraded our space many times. We take great pride in the building and its history. May 30, 2013 we held our last meeting in this location. See History page for photos.
