On Saturday and Sunday, January 26 & 27, 2019, the Amherst Belt Lines will once again have a large layout at the Railroad Hobby Show in West Springfield, Massachusetts.
Set-up for the show begins on Thursday, January 24 and continues on Friday, January 25.
If you are interested in volunteering for this Belt Lines event, please contact the Belt Lines coordinators at: AmherstBeltLines@amherstRail.org.
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.
