Welcome to my home page of the Central Valley Railroad. This layout is loosely based on operations of the Pennsylvania Railroad's North Central Branch, Maryland Division in the area of York, PA. I had to change direction on this project due to space reconfiguration. I am still hopeing one day to be able to model the Horseshoe Curve and beyond but for now, sadly to say I have to go with Plan B. The track plan is a pre published plan designed by the late John Armstrong. I am going to tweak the plan around a bit by extending the yard and trackage, and add street trackage as in York,Pa, and also adding room for a heavy industrial area. Right now the layout is still in the research & design stage so this website is long on text and short on pictures. I will be adding pictures as we progress through this project.
