Modeling in the Susquehanna Division 11
Below, listed in alphabetical order (by last name of the model railroad owner), are some of the many fine model railroads found in the Susquehanna Division 11. If the owner accommodates guests (for either layout visits or operating sessions), that information is included. A layout owner accepting guests does NOT mean that the guest gets to choose when they may visit -- that is the owner's decision. It also does NOT mean a guest may come to a scheduled operating session without prior permission from the layout owner. It simply means that the owner is willing to work out a time IN ADVANCE OF VISIT when the guest may come. Links to other websites are also included. Not all layouts are complete (scenery or benchwork). Contact the layout owner for more information on completeness. Click on pictures for a larger version.
If you are member of the Susquehanna Division 11 and would like to have your model railroad listed on this page, please e-mail us.
