New England Model Train EXPO

Layout Displays


Some of the best examples of modular scale model railroads in New England
can be found at the
New England Model Train EXPO

As of Nov 20th, we have confirmation from 13 model railroad groups who will display their operating modular layouts at our 2014 EXPO show. In addition, the HUB Division will be setting up it's own modular layout. If you would like to bring a layout display to this or a future New England Model Train EXPO, please contact the EXPO Layout Coordinator for information.

Listed below are the model railroads attending the show, along with an overview of their layout and a link to their website, if any. Additional layouts will be added as they confirm, so check back for the most current list.

Amherst Railway Society, Inc. HO Scale www.amherstrail.org/abl/index.html

The Amherst Railway Society is a non-profit organization which has about 450 members who share some aspect of railroading as a common interest. Some of those members participate in our Amherst Belt Lines modular layout. Our modular layout (30'x50') will vary in size but offers our members an opportunity to simulate prototypical railroad operations while promoting the hobby of model railroading.



Bay Colony & Western HO Scale  

The Bay Colony & Western is a modular model railroad with a concentration on operations, especially switching. There is no through-running. Members are from Cape Cod as well as Southeastern, MA. The layout is configurable into a straight linear arrangement, "U" shape or "L" shape, based on the venue floor plan.



Bertlin Railroad

Bristol S Gauge Railroaders S Scale www.bristol-s-gauge.com

The Bristol S Gauge Railroaders are dedicated to S scale (1/64 scale) model railroading. Formed in 1948, we believe we are the longest-running S scale club in America!

Members are interested in most branches of S scale, including, but not limited to, Scale, Narrow Gauge (Sn3 and Sn2), Hi-Rail, and American Flyer operating and collecting. Our major goals are to learn from each other and have fun doing it.



European Train Enthusiasts HO Scale www.ete-ene.org

The national organization of European Train Enthusiasts (ETE) was founded in February of 1973. The Eastern New England chapter was chartered in 2000 with the intention of bringing together all who are interested in the railroads of Europe. We desire by our association to share our ideas and interests, problems, and skills, and thus to find mutual support and encouragement.

Membership is open to anyone genuinely interested in European railroading, either in model or prototype. Our membership is comprised of individuals who have a wide diversity of sub-interests within the hobby of European railroading. We have members who enjoy modeling (in all scales, both AC and DC), video and still railroad photography (both production and enjoyment), European railroad travel, collecting, trading, and modular model railroading.



Kenwood & Lynville HO Scale  

The Kenwood & Lynville is a modern-era, freelanced modular switching layout. It is DCC and provides two primary switching areas, one on each end. There is an interchange with a 'fiddle' area behind the backdrop that provides for a third operator from time to time, who picks up emptys and drops off loads.



MaiNe Trak N Scale  

MaiNe trak is a modular N scale layout, using our own standard based off oNe TRAK. We interface very easily with N-TRAK and work closely with Northeast N-TRAK, Montreal N-RAIL and the HUB Division. We set up at two Maine shows and two out-of-state shows regularly.



Metrowest Model Railroad Society O Scale www.trainweb.org/metrowest

Metrowest Model Railroad Society is a non-profit model Railroad club. Our layout is a 16'x39' 2-rail O scale layout. The models are 1/48th the size of prototype trains, meaning 1/4 inch equals one foot. The trains mostly represent railroading between 1920-1990.



Narragansett Bay Railroad & Navigation Co. On30 Scale www.nvrra.com

Description not provided.



Nashua Valley Railroad Association HO Scale www.nvrra.com

Nashua Valley Railroad Association is an HO scale model railroading club based in Shirley, MA. We will display a 2'x6' switching layout.



T-TRAK N Scale  

The T-TRAK N scale modular layout is 16'x2.5' on two standard 8' tables.



Worcester Model Railroader Club HO Scale  

Description not provided. There will also be a 4x8 layout for raffle.



Youth In Model Railroading HO Scale www.ymr-online.org

Youth In Model Railroading is a non-profit model railroad club for youth ages 8-18. The HO scale layout consists of individual modules built, decorated and run by club members. The O Scale layout is an interactive layout for younger show guests to have an opportunity to run trains. Email lowell_division@ymr-online.org for information about our club.



And Your Host --

NMRA HUB Division HO Scale www.hubdiv.org

The Hub Division is sponsoring this show and will also have a large modular railroad of its own. The railroad operates using Digital Command Control (DCC). With DCC, trains operate on low voltage AC power instead of the traditional DC power.  Each train engine has a small computer chip installed, and computer instructions are sent to the locomotives through the electric pulses transmitted through the rails. Each engine only responds to it's instructions, so that all trains are independently controlled without the need for traditional DC blocks and cab control.
