Pittsburgh and Western Railroad - Paul Lapointe, Parkersburg, WV
The Pittsburgh and Western RR is a 25 x 28 ft HO freelanced layout set in the modern era in Western Pennsylvania. It primarily serves the steel and coke industries, their suppliers, and customers and was inspired by the P&LE and Union Railroads. Most structures are kitbashed or scratchbuilt. A branch line extends into the coal regions and a large urban area where street trackage is planned. Construction is steel studs and foam roadbed and sub-roadbed. It has a walk around design with DCC and most locomotives are sound equipped.
