Kids on Track: A Model Railroading Job Fair
July 22 @ 10:00 am - July 23 @ 4:00 pmFree
All aboard for fun!
On July 22 & 23, the Amherst Railway Society and Springfield Redevelopment Authority present Kids ON TRACK – a model railroading job fair – at Union Station in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Local model railroad clubs will have operating model railroads set up in the Union Station concourse, and kids (of all ages) will have a chance to run trains.
Model railroads are fascinating to watch, but the real thrill is getting a chance to run your own train and, that’s what the model railroading job fair is all about!
Kids ON TRACK is an emerging national effort by the model railroad industry to encourage young modelers, and link model railroading to STEM education.
There is no charge for this event and the Union Station parking garage, located on Main Street, will be offering a special $2 event parking fee.
