The PRR Middle Division in HO Scale will be open on November 7th from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.

I am participating as part of a south-central Pennsylvania tour, which I organize, and we are open the weekend of November 7th-8th. The schedule is at http://svmr.pennsyrr.com.

In turn, the above tour is part of the annual PA/NJ/MD/DE Model Railroad Open House organized by Bruce Friedman. This year there are a record 137 model railroads open over the course of five weeks in November. Many of the railroads are Pennsy-themed. The full schedule is at http://modelrailroadopenhouse.com.

Hope to see you on the 7th!

The PRR Middle Division in HO scale will host its first open house in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Pennsylvania Railroad Technical & Historical Society (PRRT&HS).

The tour is private for attendees of the annual meeting. However, I will open my model railroad to any of my readers interested in attending.

I will be open on Sunday, May 4th, from 11:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. I am located about halfway between York and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, just off of I-83.

If you are interested in visiting, please contact me in advance for directions.

Be reminded that this is a layout very much under construction.

Thank you.

In conjunction with the PRRT&HS annual meeting, the PRR Middle Division hosted its first open house on Sunday, May 4th.

The guest book contained 55 entries. There were a few additional spouses that were not entered. Thank you to all who attended and for your very positive feedback. Several inquired about op sessions, but that's a ways off yet!

A shout out to Dave Wartell who ran a switcher throughout the event to provide some movement on the Milroy Secondary. Thanks, Dave!

Today I learned that my submission of qualifications toward the requirements of the NMRA Achievement Program (AP) Model Railroad Author certificate was accepted.

Half of the requirements were met by Keystone Crossings, my 15 year web site project.

This is my second earned AP certificate. There are 11 certificates available. Upon award of a seventh certificate, the title of Master Model Railroader (MMR) is conferred.
