Years ago at a Greenberg train show there was a guy selling Pennsylvania Railroad root beer.
Has anyone seen it lately?

Actually...yes I do! I have 2 bottles. Bought them in the mid 90's from a train shop here in Pittsburgh. Can't remember if it was Iron Horse, or that other one in Bridgeville.
I had like 4 of the numbered ones and only saved 1 of those bottles. The "Light" was a run of 10000. I went back a few years later and saw the "Amber" version and bought one of those.

I believe Sprecher made them.

I've had some of the Pennsy coffee from that guy who roasts according to former railroad recipes. Oddly, it's my least favorite of the dozen he offers. Rock Island, and North Shore Electroliner are my faves these days. Milwaukee Road is good, too.

Once upon a time, there was a dream. A dream of a basement empire...

The railroad tis but a memory. On to the next adventure. </thread>

I don't know what's more sad, the end of transcon Pennsy or not being able to look back through all 50 pages to see the progress of 7 years.

Is all that odd bulkheading there becuase of the layout?  Or does it encapsulate pipes and vents that were badly planned by the builder? 
If they were temporary for the layout, you might want to rip them out...  Realtors like straight lines and right angles... 

And don't forget to paint it all white... :|

With all the lights, cubbies and that short wall, the room would make a great display room for art. Statues paintings, etc.

The odd pony walls are there because of foundation intruding through the space. The soffit is there covering ductwork. When we bought the house, the whole space was “crawl space.” We had the room added, and we tried to get things as tight as possible, but the laws of physics only allow so much stuff behind the drywall.

No worries about trying to please a realtor! We sold the house with the railroad still in it. We’ve closed escrow and turn the keys over tomorrow!

It was good to see you in Timonium!  Good thing settlement didn't happen BEFORE you got to the train show... Although the vendors might have enjoyed sharing the wealth!!
