Amherst Belt Lines - Membership
The Amherst Belt Lines is one of the most respected and sought after modular model railroad clubs in New England. When you join us, you become part of a group of people who share your fascination with model railroads.
Once you are a member of the Amherst Railway Society, there is no additional charge to participate in the Belt Lines.
While many Belt Lines members build model railroad modules, there is no requirement to do so. It takes many hands to set up and operate a modular model railroad. We have members who thoroughly enjoy setting up and operating the railroad.
Members are free to operate their own locomotives and rolling stock on Belt Lines layouts. The club maintains a database of locomotive information to avoid digital operating conflicts.
Finally, we encourage inexperienced modelers of all ages. The Belt Lines is a great place to learn from people who have a wealth of modeling experience and expertise.
If you are already an Amherst Railway Society member and would like to participate in Amherst Belt Lines shows and activities, please send an e-mail to the Belt Lines coordinators at: AmherstBeltLines@AmherstRail.org.
Include your contact information and ask to be added to the Belt Lines mailing list.
If you have a particular interest in some aspect of model railroading, indicate that in your e-mail as well.
If you are not member of the Amherst Railway Society, applications and payments are handled through the Amherst Railway Society On-line Store.
On the application form, check Amherst Belt Lines. Use the COMMENTS section to indicate any special modeling interests.
