One of Pennsylvania, Laurel Highlands, newest attraction is located in
Connelsville, just southeast of Pittsburgh. The
Connellsville Canteen Coffee Shop
pays tribute to WWII heroes of its time in a recreated
B&O Train Station dedicated to the remembrance of the Canteen
Ladies who served over 600 troops passing through the area on their
way to war. Also housed in the Connellsville Cantteen is Harry Clark's
Indian Creek Valley Railroad display. This 22x50 foot scratch built
display of an era gone by will just amaze you. The Fabulous panoramic
view clearly shows the craftsmanship and artistry of its builder. The HO
railroad features mountain scenery with 1000s of scratch built trees,
buildings, houses, rolling plains and mountains. Please come down to
Connellsville and step back in time to the 1940's to learn about what
our local hero's went through during WWII and also experience the
Indian Creek Valley Railroad Display. One of the finest scratch built
displays you will ever see.
As you watch this miniature display there is a railroad sound track which is enhanced by the actual train traffic from the very active CSX railroad yard just one half block away with its AMTRAC station serving riders between Washington DC and Chicago.
While in Connellsville, consider staying at the Connellsville Bed & Breakfast, just a block from the Youghiogheny River fishing and boating, the GAP Trail running from Pittsburgh to Washington DC for hiking and biking, and within 20 minutes of two Frank Lloyd Wright sites Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob. You can check pricing, bed arrangements, availability and even make reservation on the site or call us at 1-877-892-8900.
Here's a historic snapshot of Pennsylvania, Penn Pilot, from the Pennsylvania Geological Survey, Historic Aerial Photographs from 1937 through 1972. An easy to use map, you click on the red diamond, which denotes the center of each photo (usually there is 40% overlap in aerial photos), and a pop-up window will show the date of the flight and ask you if you want low, medium or high resolution.
Larry Kline's O scale layout was filmed by Tom Wilson during an operating session on March 24th, part of the RPM-East 2011 tour.
Make tracks to the Division 2 Meetings , guests are always welcome to stop in and meet other modelers. If you enjoy, or are just interested in, trains or model railroads, then you will fit right in with our interests and activities. We have members that have a few trains stored in the attic, some are master modelers, others have huge operating layouts, and others just enjoy coming to the meetings. Our annual picnic this year featured two cakes and tons of other goodies.
The Free-Mo modular railroad is a chance for anyone to model and operate a section of the layout. Members are available to help and guide you with each step in your modules construction. See our Free-Mo pictures page for photos of our modular railroad portable layout.
