"The Penn Family Lines" is a consortium of model railroads created by Robert Martin (deceased). Participation in The Penn Family Lines is open to any regular operator from Bob's Central Pennsylvania Railroad (CPRR) whose roadname contains "Pennsylvania".

The Central Pennsylvania Railroad

The Central Pennsylvania Railroad (CPRR) was created by Bob Martin in 1973. The concept of the CPRR is that it is a privately owned railroad located in Central Pennsylvania with very close ties with the PRR. So close that the CPRR logo is the PRR keystone and the CPRR uses PRR locomotives and other equipment and the PRR has unreimbursable track rights on the CPRR.

The CPRR has entered into an operating agreement with the Western Maryland Railway and uses several pieces of WM equipment.

The CPRR generates and receives a considerable amount of freight traffic, operates local passenger train service, and is a bridge route for freight and passenger and freight traffic.

Duncannon

Duncannon is one of many towns along the Middle Division main line where the railroad originally went through town. As the town grew, it impeded the railroad. The railroad bypassed the town to avoid grade crossings, etc.
