    Steve Staffieri’s PRR Elmira Branch



    The PRR Elmira Branch is a 28 x 40 foot HO scale point to point railroad set around 1948. The railroad is 90% sceniced and uses an "around the wall" construction with large peninsulas. The railroad begins in Williamsport PA winding north to Southport NY, and continuing on to the Sodus Point pier. The Susquehanna and New York railroad is also a part of the railroad running from Newberry PA to Towanda PA. There are two large staging yards, two full service yards, and 125 switches (mostly "hand thrown" using a unique throw system). Motive power is primarily brass steam with a few first generation diesels with Digitrax DCC, many have sound.

    I agree. The flyover viewpoint really gives a great feel for the larger scene. I can then watch the ride, knowing much better where I am going and have been.
