Really big shoooows...


Yes, West Springfield is coming this weekend. Great show, huge show, and lots of freight cars content, including Bob's Photos.

Timonium is the following weekend. Any news on that in the context of this list? I know Al Westerfield makes it a tradition. And Martin Lofton attended at least once. Does anyone know if he's coming this year?

Thanks ....Mike Del Vecchio

This is a reminder about this weekend's 2009 Amherst Railway Society
Railroad Hobby Show in West Springfield, Mass.

Here are the basics:

The show is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sat., Jan. 24; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sun., Jan. 25

Admission is $10 a day. Kids 15 and under get in free when accompanied
by an adult. The Eastern States Exposition charges $5 for parking.

This year's show is again in four buildings – the Better Living
Center, the Young Building, the Stroh Building and the Mallory
Complex. Next year there's a good chance the show will expand into the
rest of the Mallory Complex.

There are hundreds of exhibitors and vendors and dozens of layouts.

Manufacturers/vendors attending include Atlas Model Railroad Co.,
Athearn, Branchline, Intermountain, Lionel, Bachmann Trains, Bob's
Photo, Bowser-Stewart, The Caboose, Broadway Limited, City Classics,
Con-Cor, Funaro & Camerlengo, Kadee, Kato USA, Marklin, Micro-Trains,
NCE, NJ International, Scenic Express, River Point Station, Speedwitch
Media, Sylvan Scale Models, Sheepscot Scale Models, Train Control
Systems, Tony's Train Exchange and Walthers Inc.

You can check the show's website,, for more
information and for the location of exhibitors.
