Techie Stuff

      A Pennsylvania Railroad Dwarf PL (position light) Signal is on display for all to play with.

    Four air horns are on display, each with a button so you can hear what they sound like, and no, it's a recording :-)

     A control stand from a GP40TC diesel locomotive is here for kids 8-80 to play with.

      Display showing how electricity gets from the overhead catenary wire to the locomotive via a pantograph.  They have been busy since being in Baltimore, as the left photo is from then, and the right two were taken in Perryville.... Way to go guys! (They did the same for the signal and the control stand!)... (PS, they are wrong about one thing tho, for the New Haven used a "tri-angular" shaped catenary, with two support wires above instead of one - Amtrak replaced the last of these maybe 10-15 years ago in southern CT)

   Two rail displays.
