On the PRR Middle Division in HO Scale, the branch side of Lewistown (XA) has been declared operational. Part of the Lewistown Secondary, this is the final "missing link" of through track and trains can now traverse from the main line at Lewistown all the way to Milroy at the end of the Milroy Secondary.

In the above image, an H10s is making its way towards the junction.

The chief engineer of the PRR Middle Division in HO Scaleis pleased to submit its quarterly progress report. The full status report is available here.

During the first quarter, through trackage was activated on Lewistown (LN) and Lewistown (XA), completing the line from the main line at Lewistown Junction all the way through to Milroy. 

Extensive progress is being made on the lower yard at Lewistown Junction. The west throat is complete (see above) and the service track will soon be completed through the east end.

It's been a busy week on the PRR Middle Division in HO Scale. I've been mocking up Lewistown yard using flex track and photo copies of turnouts.

In addition to the Lewistown Secondary connector to the main line, there is an "upper yard" parallel to the main line and a "lower yard" north from that, several runaround tracks, and a car shop yard.
