Prototype, continues to serve as integral part of Norfolk Southern Railroad operations the former Pittsburgh division.  The original builders would be proud of their work. Viaduct stands, today, as a tribute to the engineering excellence of the PRR, “Standard Railroad of the World”.  My model commemorates the prototypes service to the commerce of Pennsylvania, the Keystone State, and our national economy.

As of 2006, this viaduct continues to operate in daily service on the high density traffic corridor between Johnstown and Pittsburgh, PA. Prototype has provided one hundred six (106) years service for several owners, including the Pennsylvania RR, Penn Central and Conrail

History: During the mid 1800s the Pennsylvania Railroad was experiencing significant growth in traffic and    revenues. Management embarked on a massive line improvement program. Work included right of way and infrastructure upgrades. Dramatic increases in both passenger and freight Increases in traffic mandated     expanding the existing two (2) track mainline to create the legendary BROADWAY  four (4) track mainline. At that time, the Pennsylvania Railroad was a wealthy line. Management and the engineering department spared no expense in building a rail line that would endure for the ages.
