Springfield Union Station, Kids on Track

August 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 7, 2022

Together, on August 6 & 7, the Amherst Railways Society and Springfield Union Station are hosting Kids ON TRACK – a model railroading job fair.
Area model railroad clubs will have operating model railroads set up in the historic Union Station concourse, and children (of all ages) will have a chance to run trains. While the program is aimed at children, it is really an opportunity for anyone of any age that has an interest in model railroads to run trains and ask questions about the hobby.
Model railroads are fascinating to watch, but, the real thrill is getting a chance to run your own train and, that’s what the Model Railroading Job Fair is all about.
Kids ON TRACK is an emerging national effort by the model railroad industry to encourage young modelers.
There is no charge for this event and the Union Station parking garage, located on Main Street, will be offering a special $2 event parking fee.
