The Pennsy Modeler
In order to portray Pennsylvania Railroad and interchange partners as accurately as possible, this blog contains articles which are essentially notes to myself, but are shared should the community desire the same information.
Articles are sorted by modification date, so if an existing article receives an update it will be presented at the top of the list again.

This table cross references Pennsy steam locomotives by class, type, sub class, sub class designator, year of introduction, and availability of HO models.

Models in bold are in my personal collection.
Corrections and additions to this page are welcome.
