South Shore Model Railway Club

This morning I went to the Spring Open House of the South Shore Model Railroad Club in Hingham, MA. Despite the excessive number of young children present, it was an excellent layout, with a reasonable but small quantity of vendors as well. The layout was well worth seeing, especially the structures and scenery. I especially liked the urban scenes, including a semi-covered track entering a city. The nearby harbor was less than completely effective, but water is especially difficult to model convincingly. I’m certainly not going to try to become a member, as their requirements include attending 18 meetings within a period of nine months! So I suppose it fits into the category of “a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.” I do, however, plan to return for a longer visit for their next open house in the fall.
