Come visit our Museum tables at the upcoming Railroad Hobby Show January 25th and 26th. The show, sponsored by the Amherst Railway Society, is held at the Eastern States Exposition Fairgrounds in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Please see railroadhobbyshow.com for more information about the show.
This event is one of the largest railroad hobby shows in the United States. Proceeds from the show are used by the Amherst Railway Society to promote interest in railroads, including donations to rail museums, historical societies, restoration projects and scholarship funds. Over the years, the ARS has generously donated to restoration efforts by our Museum.
Our sales table will be in the Young Building, section 78, near the “Heroes and Legends” cafe—in the area popularly known as “narrow gauge corner.” Many items available in our gift shop will be available at the show!
A highlight of this year’s show will be Maine Narrow Gauge’s Monson No. 3 operating outside on 100 feet of track. Monson No. 3 spent this past season on the WW&F in Sheepscot and operated during several of our special events in 2019. The appearance of No. 3 at the show is the result of the combined efforts of MNG, Maine Locomotive & Machine, and the WW&F.
We hope you can visit us at West Springfield January 25th & 26th!
