NYCSHS at the Amherst Railway Society's Railroad Hobby Show

NYCSHS Central Headlight editor Rich Stoving was at Amherst Railway Society's Railroad Hobby Show in Springfield, Massachusetts on January 29-30. This show is one of the largest gatherings of railroad enthusiasts in the northeast, taking up four large exhibition buildings at the Eastern States Exhibition fairgrounds. With more than 20,000 in attendance, the show is excellent exposure for the NYCSHS. The show is a major fundraiser for the ARS, which supports their grant program that in turn helps fund restoration and historical groups around the region! Rich was manning the NYCSHS table and met many enthusiastic members and also managed to sign up some new memberships as well! Speaking of which, we're all looking forward to the Annual Meeting in Albany this April, only a few months away...  (Photo by Otto M. Vondrak)
