Amherst Railway Society Railroad Hobby Show – 2015

Rapido’s upcoming Amtrak F40PH on display at the Amherst Railway Society’s Railroad Hobby Show.

This past weekend I attended the Amherst Railway Society’s Railroad Hobby Show at the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, MA. The RHS is the largest (in terms of square footage) model railroad related event in North America.  Most years it’s a pretty chaotic scene.  This year opening day coincided with a major snowstorm so apart from the harrowing drive there, it was pretty relaxed.  I didn’t hear the final attendance numbers, but they were definitely low.  I spent the weekend at the New England/Northeast RPM booth displaying some models and generally just hanging around.  I did manage to wander around a bit though and have included some photos below the cut.

    • Thanks David, I actually stopped by your booth a couple of times but there were always too many people there for me to squeeze in and get any photo’s. I should have tried to get over there first thing on Saturday. I’m impressed with the X58 photo’s I’ve seen elsewhere though. Wish I had more of a use for them 🙂
