Railroad Hobby Show - 2016
A big THANK YOU goes out to our members, volunteers, and exhibitors for another truly great Railroad Hobby Show. This is a team effort and I am always grateful for the many ways people pull together each year to make this event happen. 

We simply could not do this show without YOU!

A recent article in the Wall Street Journal painted a dim picture for the future of model railroading.

Work continues on the restoration of Maine Central 470.



Maine’s five 2-foot gauge railroads are a unique part of New England railroad history. If you are a fan of the pint-size steamers that hauled freight and passengers on these railroads, 2016 looks like a good year. Three engines are expected to be operational next year.
