  1. I have never actually seen Neal's RR but recognize it in CCT every time I see it, before I even read the credits, because it is so real and Neal's excellent work is so distinctive. It reminds me of trips I had to southwestern Pa. to visit my uncle when I was a kid. Everything is there. Fantastic!

  2. What an inspiration for a shelve-style railroad! This line proves that "less is more" with this this is wonderfully done rendition of the PRR. Congratulations, Neal!

  3. A great mix of rolling stock and some wonderful scenery made this a delight to watch. Even the musical score added volumes.

  4. Wow, very impressed with the detail and length of coal cars. Nothing beets long trains. Takes me back to the Conrail Line at Williamson Junction, New Jersey. I could watch from the sidewalk of my liquor store 30 to 40 coal cars being pulled by two GP38s on their way to the Beasley Point Power Station outside of Ocean City New Jersey.

  5. Most definitely captures the spirit and the essence of PRR in that part of the state. Outstanding effort!

  6. I come from a line of PRP people employed by Penny and being a retired RRman of N&W now NS RR Ilike looks of layout

  7. Great job. That background scenery was so exceptional I had to watch the video twice to see the trains!

  8. Really like the trains and how you present them here. Would love to see the rest of the layout. Is it in a finished mode as this portion is? Hope so. If not yet, you appear to be on a great role to have the rest look as good as this stretch. Good luck and thanks for sharing.

  9. Awesome job!!! Would love to see track plans for this layout! I love the concept of a double main line along basement walls, and otherwise!

  10. Great video. It really captures the PRR in the 1960's. Also the scenery does a fine job of showing the landscape of central Pennsylvania.
