Ken Honer’s “Philadelphia Terminal Division RR.  HO Scale, Digitrax DCC, 50% is under catenary (not electrified).  Large Penn Central layout encompassing an area from Thorndale,PA to Dale, PA  Exceptional scenery with long trains. 

Sadly Ken recently passed away and the railroad will be dismantled. I was honored to have seen and videoed it for Kens sons.

Has this layout been dismantled yet? If not, would the family consider allowing the Philly Corridor Crew to do the work of taking it apart? We might be able to salvage some of the sections into some Northeast Corridor modules.
To "call a spade a spade" is to speak honestly and directly about a topic, specifically topics that others may avoid speaking about due to their sensitivity or embarrassing nature. The Oxford English Dictionary records a more forceful variant, "to call a spade a bloody shovel", attested since 1919.
