3rd Annual Kids ON TRACK – a Model Railroading Job Fair!

Kids on Track Event

Amherst Railway Society, CTrail and Springfield Redevelopment Authority present the 3rd Annual Kids ON TRACK – a Model Railroading Job Fair!

Area model railroad clubs will have operating railroads set up in the Union Station concourse and CTrail is offering special $5 roundtrip train rides between Springfield and Hartford on both mornings of the show. Model railroads are fascinating to watch, but the real thrill is getting a chance to run your own model train and, that’s what the Model Railroading Job Fair is all about! Plus, expect an appearance by “Maggie the Railroad Clown”!

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.

Train ride tickets go on sale this summer, so stay tuned!
