The Pennsylvania Railroad Southern Division is based on areas of my interest of the terminal division and the main line from Philly to Harrisburg. My interests are electrics, steam and early diesels. The reason I chose this area for running under the wire is Pennsy prototype modeling. The catenary comes from Model Memories in kit form. Please observe the High Voltage signs for the catenary is live.

The track plan takes in scenes from downtown Philly to Harrisburg. It is my adaptation of the prototype. The period being modeled is from the 1950’s to early 1958 when the k4 and the GG1’s and the early RS diesels ruled the main line.
