Description

The Schuylkill Valley Model Railroad Club started in 1968, and held its first open house in 1975 and then every year thereafter. The Schuylkill Valley Railroad has a prototypical theme, being modeled after the Reading’s main line from Philadelphia to Reading with many of the towns along that route. There are several points of animation along the route which are activated by pushing a button on the fascia, including an operating backhoe at an excavation site, an oil rig pumping, fire engines responding to a fire, and a carnival with rides. The railroad is a point to point design. The scenery is nearly completed.
