track work

The Amherst Railway Society 7 1/4 Project

Work Day: September 19 - 9 am start time

On Saturday, September 19, the 7 ¼ gauge crew will be holding their second work day for 2020. Track work will be the order of the day - aligning and connecting rail sections, installing switches, as well as ballasting. As we did during our first work session on July 25, all CDC recommended safety precautions will be followed. Crew safety is our highest priority. Everyone’s temperature was checked, masks or facial coverings are mandatory at all times, and each crew member must fill out a health history form. In addition, the Amherst Railway Society is taking the following steps to keep members and guests safe while at our clubhouse in Palmer: - providing hand sanitizing stations - following recommended social distancing guidelines - regularly cleaning and disinfecting public areas of our property - suspending food and beverage service for the foreseeable future Please bring your own food and beverages. If you have questions about the work session, please contact Joe Biagioni at 508-729-0467‬, or
