E. Wynfield Gross' Pennsylvania Railroad in HO scale

E. Wynfield's HO version of the PRR was started in 1961. The railroad features a doubletrack mainline with a mixture of code 100 brass and nickel silver rail and very accurate PRR interlockings. The railroad is powered with conventional DC and operates with car cards and switchlists to handle the car movements. To prove the old adage that a model railroad is never complete, E. Wynfield recently added a branchline and staging yard in his laundry/furnace room area utilizing code 83 nickel silver track.
