Description

The Penn Western is a freelanced layout. It has a 29’ X 45’ footprint. The setting is Eastern and Central Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. The hub is Philadelphia. The DCC portion of the layout is controlled by a Raspberry Pi computer running JMRI. The Raspberry Pi also controls operations through JMRI and the Penn Western website. Arduino’s are used for lighting and signs for the train station. There also is a large section devoted to the East Broad Top RR.
