Model Railroading Show

NORTH HAVERHILL - The 8th annual Spring Model Railroad Show hosted by the Ammonoosuc Valley Railway Assoiation (AVRA) will be held on Sat., April 19, at the Haverhill Cooperative Middle School on Morrill Drive off NH Route 116 in North Haverhill.

The doors will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The admission donation fee is $3.00 per adult, while students will be admitted free as long as they are with a paying adult. Vendors will be selling models, kits, books, videos, photos, Lionel and American Flyer train sets, lanterns, and other railroadiana on thirty-five tables or more. On display also will be a “V gauge” layout on a computer, a truly modern approach to model railroading.

The “Virtual Engineer” train-mounted video camera will be operating on the AVRA HO gauge modular layout, along with a variety of other trains. Several modules of an “On30” scale layout will also be on display. Small children can operate the train on a layout sized just for them.

New this year will be a “Make-And-Take” program for young modelers. They will be given a free boxcar kit to assemble at the show (with instruction) and can take it home afterwards.

Free parking is available to all.
