Pennsylvania Horseshoe Curve Themed O/S Scale Train Layout

Pennsylvania Railroad’s legendary Horseshoe Curve in the peak of the fall season is the central theme of this exciting model railroad layout. Expansive broad sweeping curves help recreate the fond memories of watching heavy rail traffic from a focal point famous with rail-fans from far and wide.

Travel beyond the curve, past the town of Altoona, the rail yard, and the industrial areas. Along the route both the O gauge and S scale portions of this layout pass over several magnificent bridges and viaducts while skirting the cliffs and mountain ranges of Appalachia. Together with a plethora of super-detail structures and numerous vignettes, this model railroad display is both a visual treat and an operational delight for the would-be railroad tycoon.
