Model railroad open house was a huge success! Thanks!

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

On behalf of the Nashua Valley Railroad Association of Shirley, I would like to extend our many thanks to all those who supported our 43rd annual Railfair/Open House event on April 6 at both the Shirley Middle School and at our association quarters. The public support our event received has helped to make this the most successful Railfair/Open House we have had in many, many years!

As most of your readers know, we relocated to our current quarters at Phoenix Park in Shirley last January. We had many potential barriers, being new to the area and all, but with the help of many local people we had a very successful event:

* Total attendance at our event was the highest it has been in many years.

* The hobby dealers we had at our event reported excellent sales of their model railroad supplies.

* The many nonprofit organizations who held displays reported that they were very satisfied with the event.

While support from everyone was excellent, we would like to say a special thank you to the Shirley Middle School for hosting our event, Doreen Manning for helping us with our media campaign, the Amherst Belt Lines model railroad club for displaying their enormous model railroad layout to the public and the management team at Phoenix Park. In addition, plans for next year’s event are process. Please see our Web site listed below for updates. Thank you again to all those who helped make our event such a success!

Sincerely yours,

PETER D’OLIMPIO

Director

Nashua Valley Railroad Assoc.
