Eastern States Exposition, Railroad Hobby Show
January 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm EST
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until January 29, 2023
Organized by the Amherst Railway Society, this year’s giant event – taking up nearly a half-million square feet of railroading in four buildings on the grounds of the Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield – opens its doors at 9 a.m. on Saturday (10 a.m. on Sunday) and runs until 5 p.m. on both days.
This show is considered the largest show of its kind in North America. The event features real-life railroads and scale model railroads, historical societies, travel agencies, art shows, flea market dealers, importers, manufacturers, and photographers. Modelers’ exhibits will display outstanding handiwork on layouts ranging from the tiny Z scale which fits on a coffee table, a monster 80-foot N-Trak system, to our own Amherst Belt Lines Modular layout that boasts 8+ scales miles of track.
