Green Ridge Village Model Railroad Open Houses

November 11, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - November 12, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Three Model Railroad Open Houses at Green Ridge Village in Newville, PA

Bob Jans HO PRR Cumberland Division
39 Cedar Circle
Newville, PA 17241

12:00PM – 3:00PM

Bob’s layout is PRR with B&O trackage rights based on the proposed route of the South Penn RR from Harrisburg to Pittsburgh. It is a free-lanced, staging loop to staging loop, multi-decked layout with a 3-track helix to allow continuous running. Many scenes are re-constructed from a previous layout including a “Working thunderstorm.” Operation is with NCE DCC.

Jim Richards HO Susquehanna and Jersey Railroad
35 Cedar Circle
Newville, PA 17241

12:00PM – 3:00PM

Jim’s layout is a free-lanced, point-to-point line in the steam/diesel transition era with emphasis on appropriate structures most of which are fine scale kit-built, kit-based, or scratch-built.

Green Ridge & Big Spring RR Club HO
210 Big Spring Road
Newville, PA 17241

2:00PM – 5:00PM

The layout is based on the Cumberland Valley RR in the 1950s with the names of the towns served (Carlisle, Oakville, etc.). It is a rectangle with three peninsulas and two levels connected by a 3% grade. The layout is being converted to NCE DCC with the 1,472′ two track folded loop mainline now complete.
