An HO scale dioramas system to switching and photography.
This PRR's ho scale project is based on Pittsburgh Division (Pennsylvania Railroad Central Region) set from 1957 (the last year until complete dieselization of PRR) to 1963. The scenery is substantially a product of my fantasy, but based on some images founded on the web about that area. I have reproduced a single mainline included in a small yard with 3 siding tracks for classification of freight trains.
