Over the last 7 years I have been constructing what is referred to as a prototype train layout, meaning a layout that represents a very specific time and place. The layout is set in North Philadelphia circa 1958 and depicts approximately 3 miles of the Pennsylvania Railroad starting just south of North Philadelphia Station and encompassing the first two miles of the Chestnut Hill Branch. In order to accurately portray the area all the structures on the layout are scratchbuilt so they actually look like the buildings that were there. This work is based on research using Sanborn maps and photographs from the city archives or aerial photographs taken in the 1930s.
