The Amherst Railway Society (ARS) is a hybrid railroad organization, and probably somewhat unique in that regard. Many railroad groups specialize in only one facet of the hobby – model railroading, or railroad photography, or rail-fan trips, for example.
ARS, on the other hand, provides opportunities to enjoy many different railroad and model railroad interests.
We do that through smaller Special Interest Groups (SIGs) within the Amherst Railway Society. We have a number of SIGs, and are always willing to add more based on the interests of our members.
Here is additional information on each of our current Special Interest Groups.
