There has been lots more activity at the station this year. Looking ahead to improving the 3rd peninsula, a helix was constructed to elevate the branch line to a future second level. Tunnel Hill and Tyson Wye have taken on many changes, both in scenery and trackage. In addition, all Mainline, Central Yard, Tyson Wye, and Tunnel Hill turnouts/switches have been modified to operate under control of a new dispatcher's CTC system (which is part of JMRI's Panel Pro software), smart phones, and/or hand held tablets, not to mention hand-held throttles.

Here are some recent pictures taken of the layout, but we would really like you to stop by and see the updates for yourself during our 2012 - 2013 Open House Season. Besides, there's a lot more to see than just these pictures, like the newly painted ERIE boxcar and new PRR caboose outside the station!
