Located 8.6 miles West of Huntingdon, PA

I am a big fan of the "Standard Railroad" of the World! 
Although, best know for their radical locomotive designs and fleet of all pullman varnish keeping it on the timetable, round the clock, between New York and Chicago, it was what was under the steel wheels, the four track Broadway mainline, that truely impressed me! Their physical plant was superb!  Beauty is more than skin deep as the saying goes.

During the Mid 1800's - early 1900's the Pennsylvania railroads foresighted senior management supported a talented engineering team facilitating a system upgrade. This action included new stations, structures,  track re-alignment, widening the mainline to accommodte the BROADWAY four (4) track mainline and replacement bridges, a series of stone arch viaducts, built to last forever!

Today, several decades and owners removed from the original Pennsylvania Railroad, these enduring landmarks continue to generate revenue. Obviuosly, the originators and bean counters would agree, money well spent!  I hope my models serve to commerate the golden age of rail transportation in early industrial America.
    

PRR - Juniata River Viaduct, built 1898'

Although most of the bridges along the BORADWAY right of way were widened to accomodate four (4) tracks, during the line upgrade program of the late 1800s - early 1900s, the Eastern and  Western approachs to Tussy mountain and Spruce Creek Tunnel remained two track designs. This was due to the rugged topography in the locale. The steep narrow cut forced the mainline tracks to diverge and proceed along both banks of the Juniata river

Prototype, located 2.6 miles West of Spruce Creek tunnel 

Bridge, features, derived from hand carved clay masters. Rubber molds are created off “masters”.  Stone features are cast from rubber molds. Time consuming process results in no two castings being exactly the same. Assembled structure is decorated with washes of granite, various stone & earth tones and neutral colors, Method of casting, construction and decoration and sealing assures “individuality” of each bridge.
