BIG VIADUCT II  stands today, one hundred fifteen (115) years later, operating in revenue service! As of 2007 this viaduct continues to be a intregal component of NS - Norfolk Southern operations in Western PA.

My models, replicate both the original BV
viaduct and the current BVII viaduct designs.
All passenger & freight trains on the former 
"Broadway"
  mainline utilize this viaduct to cross over the Conemaugh river near Johnstown, PA.

BUILT FOR THE AGES! 
This enduring viaduct and dozens of similar designs, criss crossing, the many rivers and streams in this region is testiment to the foresight of the Pennsylvania Rail Road management and expertise of their engineering team. The Pennsy invested in plant and equipment providing sound infrstructure and a superb right of way that was second to none! 

Their original investment in the economic future of America has returned dividends to the railroad,the economy of the region and the welfare of our nation for decades!


Replica model is an example of Americas "Turn of the Century" engineering excellence. 
Enduring designs like this earned Pennsy the title "Standard Railroad of the World".
