Historical Society Train Show

February 16, 2013

Thomas the Train is a feature enjoyed by kids of all ages.

The annual train show sponsored by the Holliston Historical Society is a fun take for all.

Kyle, 5, lives for Thomas the Train, or any train for that matter. His father says that he often takes Kyle for rides on the Green Line into Boston, then to ride the subway, and then back again. A 21st century Charlie of the MTA.

The model trains set up by Coastal Mountain Railroad are in scale to pefection.

Micah, age 2, came all the way from Cumberland, RI, to run the train and maybe take this one home.

Four year old Domenic from Medway worked the paddle train like a champ.

This is a scene on the displayed model. Could it be more realistic?

Then there is the fun part for kids like John Tobin, in control of Thomas the Train.

The annual train show is the brain storm of Historical Society Past President Peter MacMurray, who organized the event nine years ago. In addition to the Coastal Mountain Railroad, members of the Brass Caboose and the Waushakum Live Steamers also set up and displayed their trains. Once a kid ...

Another realistic to scale scene on the model rail track.

Kids of all ages had fun rolling on the track, as evidenced by 7 year old Ethan Holmes.



Casey's provided some great food for the event, including hot dogs, pulled pork, chili, and a wide assortment of tonics and juices.

This model train set will be presented to the lucky winner of the raffle.

Thank you to the men and women of Coastal Mountain Railway, Waushakum Live Steamers, and the Brass Caboose for sharing their passion for trains. I love watching the faces of children young and old as they look at the displays. Thank you to the above groups, Casey's Public House, Conductor MacMurray, and all attendees for supporting the Holliston Historical Society.
