Watch this video from a fellow model railroader
Bill Kachel’s model railroad was featured in season 9 of "Tracks Ahead."

Bill Kachel’s Cosmopolitan Division of the Pennsylvania Railroad from Pittsburgh to NYC and New Haven is an HO-scale DCC-controlled railroad. It incorporates the PRR, New Haven and Reading railroads, and includes the Hell Gate Bridge, Horseshoe Curve and the Zoo interchange in Philadelphia. His railroad has been featured in season 9 of the TV show “Tracks Ahead”. This layout is truly an amazing feat of model railroading engineering and is open to visitors during the November Model Railroad Open House schedule for PA, DE, MD and NJ.
