Together, on August 6 & 7, the Amherst Railways Society and Springfield Union Station are hosting Kids ON TRACK – a model railroading job fair.
Area model railroad clubs will have operating model railroads set up in the historic Union Station concourse, and children (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.
