OK, so I see there are others out there in cyberspace who are Pennsy fans.
Not to beat a dead horse, I love the prewar switchers. Just something about the chunky shape makes me smile and the bell ringing tender that sounds like the bell you would ring on somebody's business counter. OK, even the scale version is not really 100% true to the prototype, but I can live with the semi-scale fleet. Lucky for us that there are enough scale, semi-scale, tinplate, etc., steam, diesel, electric options to keep all of us happy.
What do you run and what PRR books do you have in your library? For me, I love:
- All of the Messer/Roberts Triumph-series books
- the more recent Albert Churella (chunky-sized too) book, The Pennsylvania Railroad, Volume 1
- Don Wood's, I Remember Pennsy
