PGRS… JULY event / TOUR @



TIME 1:00…….SAT. JULY 20      COST $5 ADULT (CHILD < 13 = free)


One stop viewing of all gauges and periods from “G” to “N” are displayed by the LHMRR Club in a large unique room. As you enter the train room on the “G” layout a working mine shaft, a crane moving lumber around the yard and a roller mill sifting gravel into sizes to be used as ballast on the different gauge lines can be viewed. A selected compression of the line from Pittsburg (before the h) to Somerset through the Allegheny tunnel is just another part of the beginning of this tour. Landscapes, a circus, towns and overhead train hauling 20+ cars attract your attention.  BUT, the central attraction is a functioning COG Railway copied from the one at Mt. Washington in New Hampshire. The panoramic observation deck with its floor to ceiling windows has been faithfully miniaturized to scale at the top of the summit. This is just a sampling of the first one third of the area’s layouts. You will need to attend the event / tour on July 20th at 1:00 for the guided tour of the club member’s creative train ideas. Whether you are a history buff, a R.R. buff or both, you will be pleased. Parking is FREE on the level street and there are parking lots within a block. A handicap ramp provides access to the entrance and trains.

Call or email; Alycefaye.stewart@comcast.net or 724-837-5449 By July 19 to let her know you are going to attend so they can have enough guides. THANKS…..

P.S. Admission fee is used to pay for building, utilities and maintenance, donation bucket in gift shop is used for the displays.
