Eighth Annual Train Show - New Venue

by Bea Hait

Holliston Historical Society is proud to present the 8th Annual Train Show on February 18 and 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at a NEW venue that will feature a larger display area for the trains: Holliston’s Upper Town Hall, 703 Washington Street. Catering will be provided by The Fairview at Pinecrest. Admission $3 (under 5 free) with $15 max per family.

Coastal Mountain Railroad returns with an award-winning HO scale modular layout. The scenery is carefully detailed and captures an active branch line set in New England during the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. Using the latest technology, three to four trains are operated simultaneously to move a variety of freight and passenger traffic around the layout.

Brass Caboose will afford a hands-on opportunity for young ones with a greatly expanded G scale display featuring Thomas the Tank Engine and other trains. A working N scale layout will be given away in a drawing at the end of the weekend.

The Waushakum Live Steamers, who operate scale steam locomotives on an outdoor track at their 16-acre Holliston location, will offer close-up views of scale steam locomotives.
