Track Expansion Project

Since September of 1997, the members of PLS have been active on an ambitious multi-gauge track expansion project. This will include the replacement of the three track wooden bridge with a two track tunnel and five tracks overhead, constuction of a 180 foot long trestle, and a grade crossing at the beginning of the infield driveway. Construction is expected to take about three years. An artist's concept drawing can be viewed here.


To help with the financing of this massive undertaking, PLS is offering a limited edition print by the well-known and respected railroad artist Ted Xaras entitled "Steam on a Summer Sunday". Each 16" X 22" print is signed and numbered by the artist.
