Amherst Train Show
West Springfield, MA
25 January 2009
I took a run up to West Springfield today to visit the big train show. Since the last time I was there it has grown like mushrooms on a damp summer night. The show now uses FOUR building of the Eastern States Exhibition grounds. Who knew that there was so much interest in model trains.
As I walked around the show I took photos mostly of the signs at various booths. My thinking was that folks who did not attend the show might find a resource that would be of value to them that they were not previously aware of. Maybe it was a good idea, maybe not. But it did seem like a good idea at the time.
Our friends at PVLS had an active display and there seemed to be a lot of interest from show visitors. I am wondering if NEMES should also display at the show in the interest of corralling some new members.
The Mohegan Pequot club is local to my home in Preston, CT.
I was very glad to be able to chat with this fellow. Proves that I am not the only one who travels with stuffed animals. Roy and Eddie did not go to this train show with me and I was somewhat poor (wrong side of payday) so I was able to resist buying the Roy Bear any new T shirts with train logos on them. Just as well as the darn bear probably owns more T shirts than I do.
