Robert Putnick – Ephrata Valley Railroad (HO)


The Ephrata Valley Railroad is a free-lanced HO-Scale layout, constructed on a 4′ x 4′ platform, set at the height of the Autumn season. It operates during the time period of the late 1950’s to the early 1970’s. The main inspiration behind much of the scenery is at large taken from the Pennsylvania countryside, with many structures on the layout purposefully named after specific towns in PA. Notable structures include: the Schuylkill Valley Station, Ephrata Coal Company, York Sawmill & Lumber Company, and the Hanover Water Tower. The layout features 2 individual track lines, 1 bridge, and 2 switching points. In addition, the industries of coal and lumber are represented as the core source of freight transported on the Ephrata Valley Railroad. Several railroads serve on the layout, with the most popular being the Pennsylvania RR, Reading RR, and the Union Pacific RR.
