South Shore Model Rail Road Club

Spring Show

23 March 2013

Short Show Video HERE

I visited this show last year and was so impressed with the club facility and the friendliness of the members that I decided to go again this year.  I am not really a model train person but any excuse to get out and about in the spring time is a good reason!  We had to get off I95 to find gas in Mansfield and took the scenic route from there to Hingham. Saw parts of Massachusetts we had not seen before so it was very pleasant.  But we had to turn off the voice on the GPS as it wanted us to turn around and go back to the main highway.  And that darn thing is VERY persistent.

The South Shore track is a constantly evolving (as, I am sure, are most club tracks) and some of these photos show that evolution and development.

All the locomotives are remote controlled using hand held devices.  Receivers in the locos read signals from the controllers that control speed, lights, sound and so on. In this way an engineer can walk around the layout supervising his train at every step of the way.

If you see your exhibit or machine and would care to drop me a line or two, or even a paragraph, about it I will be delighted to add your comments to this page.  Please send to   To identify a photo just hover your cursor over the photo and a tag should pop up.  Please use the last three digits of the tag to identify the photo. For  example if the tag came up  DSC03974.jpg (205067 bytes) the info I would need is 976.jpg. If this is a multi page unit the page number would also be useful.
