The annual Amherst Railway Society Big Railroad Hobby Show was held on Saturday and Sunday, February 7 and 8, at the Eastern States Exposition (The Big E) at West Springfield, Massachusetts. Vic Clark provided a trailer again this year. The G and HO scale modules were unloaded in the Young Building before 10:00 AM on Friday morning. Both layouts were working by the end of the day although there was a slight glitch in the new passenger module wiring.  But not to worry, Stu wasn’t about to let that slow us down. The N scale and On30 layouts of course were up and running by lunch.  Everything went smoothly on Saturday and Sunday.  This was another successful trip to the BIG Railroad Hobby Show for the club.
