Welcome to our website that celebrates the Erie Lackawanna Railroad in
Scranton, PA, with the modeling being executed in N-Scale.
Some good questions.
Where is Scranton?
Scranton is found in North-East Pennsylvania in
the old anthracite coal mining area. On the left is a map from the National Park
Service. The top and upper-right borders are with New York and the others are
other parts of Pennsylvania. The photo on the right is a photo of the downtown
Scranton railroad scene in the mid 1950s.
What is Scranton Station?
Scranton Station is the original Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad (see below)
passenger station which is now a Radisson Hotel. It was completed in 1908 and
still retains its grandeur.
Today, the original marble murals are fully restored on the walls of the
interior. You can see the location of the station in the photo above. It is
on the top edge, just left of center.

What is N-Scale?
So, with those brief definitions, please browse around this site. You will
find the main sections in the navigation links on the left side, and, if there
are sub-sections, then you will find links at the top of the right side. Many of the images
and photographs that are normally displayed with widths in the 400-450 pixel
range can be viewed in higher detail by clicking them. These can generally be
identified as having a border around them.
With that said, enjoy and if you have any questions, feel free to email me at
