Layout Details

For 2021, this will be an in-person tour of this indoor model railroad. 

Layout Description:

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 a duck-under) depicting the mainline and industrial operations of the Penn Division.  A lower staging level connects to the main layout via two ramp tracks.
