There are several Springfield's in the US.  Narrow the field by adding a state.
Some of us live in the midwest.

My guess is that it will be at the Springfield Convention Center. Here is an interactive map!

Might want to watch your step near the She She Lounge!

Best wishes, Dave

If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Even this Canadian knows there is only one SPRINGFIELD he could be referring to!  :lol:  I'd love to go someday, maybe revisit UMASS and the Happy Valley.  It's only 7 hours from here...   The Amherst/Springfield show was great when I last went in 1993.

I make the 4 hour plus ride from Pennsylvania every year..It`s several buildings of nothing but modell rr stuff...
You`ll never find a Philly cheese steak on a menu in Philadelphia. It`s called a cheesesteak and we all know where it`s from...

Not to mention many of the proceeds from the show are distributed to railroad restoration groups throughout the northeast.

Mike, its about three to four TIMES the size of the National Train Show.

Besides, you get to see me, AND Robb, now who wouldn't want that!  :D

Roger,
The state is Massachusetts.
Here is a link to the shows web page.

 :) My comment/question comes because I see a tendency for this forum to be somewhat EAST-COAST-USA-centric.
Especially when railroad shows are discussed such as this one which is out of range for those of us in the midwest.  There are shows in Springfield, IL, too.
This is not the only railroad forum where I see this occur; if one were to follow the B&O forum based on content they might assume the railroad never went past Ohio's western border.  ;)

You mean it goes into the State of Ohio?   Gee, I thought the B&O started in Baltimore and stopped at the river!
