  1. Yes it is and this is just like the prototype,when Bob designed the layout ,he went directly from Conrail zts charts I sent him.

  2. Looks like the only way to switch the industries on the branch is to shove the train up there.

  3. Grew up in PA (Altoona). Ferryed Aircraft from Lock Haven so I saw the Bald Eagle branc. Very good depliction.
