It didn't dawn on me that it ended up as a NYC subsidiary. Must not have been a hotspot for fan photos at that time as I haven't found any photos of it in my brief search.
I googled Federal Valley RR and got some interesting hits. It was only a 15 mile spur line and existed from around 1888-1954. They had two engines and handful of cars. The mainline through Palos, OH appears to be in good shape but no sign of the Federal Valley which branched off to the Southeast from Palos. Someone wrote a book about it though.
It must have caught the attention of someone at Atlas. This is an N scale model.

Waiting for this to come in to Just Trains of Delaware. My wife and I decided to support a local small business during this pandemic by ordering this. It holds sentimental value to my family. We paid a visit to Stone Mountain last year for our vacation.

Yes, I slowed a bit. I picked up a few cars and some rolling stock for repainting projects. The layout building starts soon...

Nice Tom. I picked up one of these when they first came out from Beth. Also have a reservation on an R2. I am not holding my breath on that one.

Thanks Pete. I was surprised she had one left. Certain things seem to appear on her site out of the blue, so it is worth checking her listings on occasion. I found a few gems at her site.

I like the R2 also, but I didn’t order one...yet. I did order a 3rd Rail future release of a NJT E-60 electric locomotives. The E60 was one of the worst engines I ever ran...gotta have one though!

My PRSL caboose came in the mail yesterday from Holly Beach. It’s an uncatalogued item (MTH 30-77356). It has a lot of detail for a Railking, but it’s not exactly prototypical. PRSL used ex-PRR cabooses. PRSL 227 was an N-5. The model is of a Reading NMl so it has too many windows. And It’s being pulled by a Baldwin with too many axles. Good thing I’m not a purist.
