Go to Hi Rail Junction's web page   Pennsylvania RR tool shed
Jim Hawk of Valley Lee, MD
I've been interested in trains since the mid 1970's when I watched early Conrail coal trains on an ex-PRR branchline where I grew up. The sight and sounds of prototype coal trains creeping and groaning on branchline trackage coupled with a Lionel train at home set the hook.
Until the mid 1980's I worked on a Lionel layout in my parents' basement. College, cars and girls brought an end to the layout and trains shortly thereafter.
After a lapse of about 10 years I got back into 3 rail O scale trains in the mid 1990's. About two years ago I switched to 2 rail O scale with an interest in modelling the Pennsylvania Railroad.

My current focus is to model as accurately as possible many of the small trackside structures that were unique to the PRR. A web site on the Internet, http://www.pennsyrr.com/, and a book titled Trackside On The Pennsylvania by Jeff Scherb have proved invaluable references. The links below to photos of the tool shed show my first effort. A shed similar to this stood along the tracks near my home as a young railfan until it burned in the early 1980's.
