Ah the last weekend on January, most people mark this weekend as the prep weekend for “the big game.” On the contrary, railfans celebrate it quite a different way. The biggest train show in New England and arguably North America is in West Springfield, MA in the Big E Fairgrounds for the Amherst Belt Rail Train show. It has showcased 7+ acres of trains since 2010 and has been entertaining railfans for over 35 years.
Here is just some of the model trains that were on showcase during the train show, there isn’t enough time in two days, let alone one for one day to see everything in the show. So here is some of the best portions of the show which I had seen.
Next up some more crises on the CSX Chicago Line.
