BTO Convention, Boston


BTO Club members normally run G-scale electric or steam trains outdoors in their gardens. Their annual conventions, however, focus less on garden railroading, per se, and more on the attractions offered in the area, albeit with a bias toward railroading venues. The 2011 convention was in Boston, Massachusetts and included a Duck tour (*Ü*), lunch at Cheers (*Ü*), and a visit to the Samuel Adams Brewery (*Ü*) and Fenway Park (*Ü*). Where possible, these attractions were accessed via the T (*Ü*) to make it a railroading experience. The convention concluded with a visit to the Waushakum Live Steamers (*Ü*), who run steam and electric trains on 3.5″, 4.75″ and 7.25″ gauge track, which make the equipment large enough to ride on.
