Athearn - 2014 Railroad Hobby Show PhotosThe Railroad Hobby Show in W. Springfield, MA is a truly unique event and should be on every model railroader's bucket list to visit at least once. At nearly 400,000 square feet, this is the largest train show in North America. The shows boasts over 40 operating layouts, numerous manufacturers and vendors, and lots of real railroad items. Here's a sampling of what we saw this past weekend.
Wow! There were so many stunning layouts and sights to be seen. It's impossible to pick a favorite scene, but the lively carnival and unbelievably-realistic mountainous snow plowing stood out the most to me. I'm going to have to find an excuse to head to Massachusetts next year, because this looks like an absolutely can't-miss event. I don't know how many railroaders made the trip, but I bet they all left with a big smile on their face.
