HO Scale Piedmont & Allegheny Railway in the Shenandoah Valley
Join us as we tour Walter Appel's HO scale freelanced railroad in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. The railroad is based in the winter of 1957-58. You'll learn about the layout's design and construction and how Walter operates it. This feature includes many photos of the P&A's scarlet and gray locomotives working alongside the Virginian, Baltimore & Ohio, and Lehigh Valley Railroads.
