Railroad Shows

Attending railroad shows is an enjoyable part of the railfan experience. Visitors can see model railroad layouts in operation and have a chance to browse through a wide range of merchandise of interest to railfans. The B&MRRHS is visible at several of these shows during the year. Our Shows Committee is charged with setting up attractive tables and selling a variety of B&M-related collectibles and gear at many shows. Not only do we raise money for our Society activities but we also bring the Society before the public and meet many old and new friends in the process.
