WESTFORD — The following press release was shared with WestfordCAT by Westford Museum Director Linda Greene for publication and distribution.

The Model Trains are coming! The Model Trains are coming to the Westford Museum!

Visit the Westford Museum and get express train tickets punched on Sundays through June from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors can also see the trains on June 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the Strawberry and Arts Festival.

This June, see the largest model trains exhibit in Westford at the Westford Museum conducted by the model train engineers of the Middlesex Central Model Railroad Club.

The Middlesex Central Model Railroad Club takes its name from the Boston & Maine Branch Line. That line started at the North Station on the B&M main line then branched off at Arlington and stopped at Concord, Carlisle and Westford.

The club was organized in the 1980s and meets at the Westford Senior Center (formerly the Cameron School).  At present, they have over 6oo feet of track.  Their control system allows several model train engineers to move freight and passengers to and from various stations within the layout of the model train track.

Come and meet the Middlesex Central Model Railroad Club engineers, learn about the history of the railroad in Westford and experience the sights and sounds of the Model Trains.
