Massachusetts - Amherst Railway Society
Amherst, MA - In simplest terms, the Amherst Railway Society is a community of people who share a fascination with railroads, and has been for over 50 years. If we go all the way back to the mid-1950s, we find a small group of University of Massachusetts students and faculty members who realized that they shared a common interest in railroads. So they started meeting regularly to share railroad knowledge, photographs, and stories. And those regular meetings continue to this day.

The small group grew, incorporated as a non-profit corporation, and started thinking about other ways to share their rail interests.

Every February the Society presents its annual "Big Railroad Hobby Show" at the Eastern States Exposition Fairgrounds (Big E) in West Springfield, MA.
