Washington Area Railway Engineering Society (W.A.R.E.S.)


The Washington Railway Engineering Society (WARES) is a longstanding organization of professionals with an interest in railway design, construction, operation, and maintenance. It provides networking opportunities for its members and raises scholarship money for students majoring in railway engineering.

Membership is free and voluntary. We would be happy to put you on our mailing list.

WARES hosts four dinner meetings each year, in October, December, February, and April. Each meeting includes an interesting presentation by one of our members, or a guest. Our mailing list includes over 200 members. Typical attendance at meetings averages approximately 50 participants.

The October meeting usually is held at the Engineer’s Club of Baltimore; the other meetings usually are held at a restaurant near Washington Union Station.  

We also host a golf tournament in September, at Musket Ridge, in Frederick County, MD.

Annual Sponsorships of $400.00 are solicited from companies engaged in the business. Sponsorships provide a fund for the scholarships awarded to railway engineering students.

We would appreciate your participation!
