Springfield

I, at the last minute, was able to attend the Springfield Show. Attendance was down 400 people from last year at Twenty one thousand and thirty nine people attending over 2 days. I was able to accept the Heritage Grant in the amount of $ 1,000.00 from Sudro Brown, President of the Amherst Railway Historical Society. The money will go to further restore Portland Terminal snow plow #68.


Our model railroad show preparations are coming along nicely. Remember to mark May 17th on you calendar and come and see us.
