A visit to the layouts at the 2018 railway hobby show - video

March 12, 2018

We're lucky to have our work also be our passion. Part of the fun for us is the opportunity to travel around the country visiting model train shows. Below is a video of one of the model train shows that we think every enthusiast should visit at one point in their life.
The Railway Hobby Show in Springfield Mass is insane. No matter how we try to describe this show it always comes up a little short.
Here's a video we put together with a sampling of the great layouts that were on display there this year
