The San Diego S-Gaugers is a tax exempt 501(C)(3) association of model railroaders founded January 19, 2008, in San Diego, California, dedicated to a three-part mission:
1. Promotion of S-Gauge model railroading
2. Education about S-Gauge model railroading, about model railroading in general, and about railroading in general.
3. Having fun in the process
To contact the club, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Contributions and bequests of S-Gauge model railroad equipment would be greatly appreciated. Email the club for details.
New members welcome. Come join the club.
Come visit us in La Mesa's Grossmont Center.

If you happen to come by when we're not open, push the button outside the window and the trains on both window layouts will run for about a minute.
Dale has embarked on a project to create freight cars that are more interesting and realistic than those manufactured by Gilbert and other manufacturers,
and many of the buildings on the layouts were built by club members.

Meetings and Other Events
The club has monthly meetings, at 10:00AM to noon, either on a Tuesday or a Saturday (see calendar of events below).
At the January meeting each year, we hold the election of officers and collection of annual dues.
At the club's June 2016 meeting, Wes Noel demonstrated the proper application of Bullfrog Snot
to increase the traction of an engine's drive wheels, and hence to increase the number of cars it will pull.
