On Saturday, September 29, 2018, the Amherst Belt Lines will be participating in the Rutland Railway Association’s annual train show.
The one-day event is a major fundraiser for the Rutland Railway Association which promotes railroad education and interest in Rutland, an area rich in railroad history.
The Belt Lines crew will begin layout set-up on Friday afternoon, September 28.
The Belt Lines trailer is now decorated with the Amherst Railway Society, Amherst Belt Lines, and Railroad Hobby Show logos and web addresses. As the trailer travels around New England, it will visually promote the Amherst Railway Society.
Model railroads are a system that is connected by a set of rules. Much like computer programming, model railroads appeal to adults and children with creative, inventive minds.
In model railroading, community matters. When you operate with a group or participate in a club, you make new friends and learn new modeling skills. All of us are smarter than any one of us. That’s what makes a model railroad club such a great learning experience.
