Modeling the Pennsylvania Railroad

Modeling the Pennsylvania Railroad

Modeling the Standard Railroad of the World, the Pennsylvania Railroad. Most fans simplify the title down to the Pennsy or PRR, but whatever you call it it is one of the most modeled railroads of all time. Located in Central Pennsylvania White Rose Hobbies is deep within Pennsy territory for sure. We have a large inventory of PRR books, HO Scale, N Scale, O Gauge and O Scale models. In this blog we will feature some resent releases and items still available for pre-order. 

One of the most recent HO Scale Pennsylvania Railroad releases are the E6 Class 4-4-2 Atlantic's from BLI with both pre and post war era stylings. The most famous E6 the 460 is offered in both the pre-war chocolate striping as well as the as restored museum edition.
