Chesapeake, Susquehanna and Western Railroad
Ken Poznaniak’s Chesapeake, Susquehanna and Western Railroad (HO
scale) is a contemporary line featuring Amtrak passenger trains and
modern, high capacity freight trains. This fully scenicked,
bilevel layout is connected at each end by a helix permitting
continuous running or point-to-point DCC operation.
industries include a coal processing plant with an automated,
continuous running, coal loading facility and an automated rotary
dumper for the hopper cars at a large power plant. A major steel
mill with dual blast furnaces, rolling mill, and all the necessary
support facilities generates much of the traffic for the railroad, and
plenty of switching chores for the operating crews. An engine
terminal with roundhouse and turntable services both diesel locomotives
and the steam engines which power rail fan specials.
