PMRR Hazel Mine - Introduction
My objective with this sectional diorama is to build a true-to-scale replica of the Hazel Mine found in southeastern Canonsburg, Pennsylvania as it was in the Summer of 1950.
PRR Chartiers Branch
This is my second effort at attempting to model a portion of the Pennsylvania Railroad's Chartiers Branch in S-scale. This time around the modeling efforts will all be true-to-scale, and true to the prototype. This is something I have always wanted to do, but, until now, couldn't figure out how to do that.
The photo shown on the previous page was taken in April 2017 of the first attempt at building the diorama using foam board for the sub-roadbed material. Once the new diorama sections are built, the layout shown in the photo will be dismantled and replaced with the new one. It is the new one that is being documented in the rest of the pages in this section of my web site.
