This is an advance notice about the ETE Eastern New England chapter’s plans to sponsor a EuroEast exhibition at the upcoming Amherst Railway Society’s Railroad Hobby Show at the Big E Exposition Center in West Springfield, MA on January 27 & 28, 2018. We are especially excited that Märklin USA will be attending the show for the first time and will be co-located with the chapter’s layout in the Mallary Building.
Some of the displays and activities that are planned for the Euro East exhibition are:

  • Eastern New England Chapter layouts: large H0 modular 3-rail layout, Bergbahn 2-rail DCC layout, and meter gauge Swiss themed layout.
  • Kids’ layout, where children can operate an H0 scale train
  • Märklin USA exhibit with demonstrations of Märklin products
  • Multiple sellers of European model trains from a variety of manufacturers
  • Clinics on subjects of European model railroading; 6 clinics are planned for the 2-day show
  • Social gathering and dinner on Saturday evening of the show at the Munich Haus restaurant in Chicopee, MA.
