The Delaware & Hudson Penn Division ran from Wilkes Barre PA to Nineveh Junction NY.  I am closely modeling the prototype as I remember it from my childhood.  The railroad is an around the wall layout with duck under depicting the mainline and industrial operations of the Penn Division. A lower staging level connects to the main layout via 2 ramp tracks.
