Springfield RR Show

The big Springfield show is on this weekend, sponsored by the Amherst Railway Society and located at the Big E in West Springfield.  The WW&F and Sandy River both have tables, I can't recall if Boothbay Railway Village does, and don't know if MNG has one or not.  I think it's the biggest train show in the Northeast.  Check it out if you're in the area.

MNG does have a booth this year. I'm not entirely sure where it is, though.

They are in Mallary, table 157H. Mallary is the building with the round-topped pavilion on the left as you enter from the parking lot to the exhibit buildings. The 157 tables are along the very back wall (a newly opened section), and H is in the middle of that row of tables. For more information on all exhibitors, go to http://www.railroadhobbyshow.com/listofexhibitors.asp. If you then return to the home page and pull down on the "Who's who" link, you can get the floor plan that shows all of the table locations. Don't forget the SR&RL at Young 78 D,E,F, and most important (of course) the WW&F at Young 78 B, C!

John,
Any idea why MNG is in Mallory Bldg.?  Usually they are located adjacent to the WW&F table in Young Bldg. aren't they?  Could it be because they forfeited their table last year?

I expect that's the case. In fact, didn't they forfeit their table for two years?

John,
I thought it was only one year but you could be right. That's too bad. It has been nice to have all of the 2 footers together in one area of one building. Duncan

The Western Wiscasset & Northern Ry will be there too, set up near the WW&F/SRLL.  The WW&N is a 7/8N2 (G+ scale 50% larger than LGB) modular based on WW&F and SRRL prototypes.  Marcel will have a few cars of his on the WWN rails as well.  Check the link to get a preview of the WWN: home.rr.com/wwnry.

Hope to see a lot of you there.

I was hoping to get a preview but the address you supplied does not exist. Even a search on Google turns up nothing.
