Eastern States Exposition
Springfield, Massachusetts, USA
The Model Railroad show floor space was 7 acres (3 hectares)
Typical train layout with scenery.
Cinderella Castle, Disney World.
Interesting Industrial Scenery.
Note the size of this room, it is the largest of the four buildings.
This is about 1/3 of the layout of the Amherst Railway Society (hosts of the event).
The engine in the foreground was offered for sale, $12,500.
I was so interested in the large guage Locomotive I didn't notice the orange crane.
From a distance I saw the crane moving and since I had a superzoom, I caught it in action.
A large steel bridge.
Lots of children looking at the trains.
Usually the train enthusiasts cringe to see boys handling the rolling stock.
This is the only layout I saw RUN by children. They have on yellow ID necklaces.
There was only one booth with anything larger than 1.75 inch tracks.
My friend and I visited the Pioneer Valley Live Steam Open House and rode on 7.25 guage cars.
A Real Steam Engine, the only one I saw!
For my friends in Western New York State.
This train was sharp by accident.
I forgot all about following a moving subjects, which I do often at the Dog Park.
If nothing else, this layout had the brightest LEDs.
The tracks merge into infinity. The longest and narrowest layout.
How does a train gain altitude in a narrow space? This engine goes down in this spiral, gains in the distant one.
