The Pennsylvania Railroad claimed to be "The Standard Railroad of the World." The railroad certainly lived up to this boast during the height of World War Two by doubling its freight traffic and quadrupling its passenger traffic. In the years following the war, the Pennsy continued to maintain its "standard," even when other railroads began to dieselize, use single-track main lines, and yield to competing highway traffic.
In the following pages collected from Model Railroader Magazine, Dave Frary recaptures the enduring spirit of the Pennsylvania Railroad as it was in the 1950s. Follow chapter by chapter as he constructs his 11 x 16-foot HO scale layout. Starting with a track-planning model that reflects the rich heritage of the railroad, Dave then explains the techniques he used to build benchwork, lay track, and wire the layout. And you'll even see how easy it is to apply Dave's water-soluble scenery techniques to create a setting that's typical of the Eastern region.
Whether you're out to model the Pennsylvania Railroad or not, the basic principles described here can be applied to any layout, gauge, or scale. We've even included an all-new chapter filled with full-color photos that will inspire any modeler. If you would like to read more about the Pennsylvania Railroad, two helpful references are: Manhattan Gateway: New York's Pennsylvania Station, by William D. Middleton, and Heart of the Pennsylvania Railroad-The Main Line: Philadelphia to Pittsburgh, by Robert S. McGonigal (both from Kalmbach Publishing Co.).
