||Welcome to the Pennsylvania Live Steamers Website. The Pennsylvania
Live Steamers, Inc. was established in 1946 as an all volunteer organization dedicated
to the preservation of the nation’s rich mechanical and engineering heritage. We are
incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Our Purpose is to formulate and carry out plans for the construction and operation of
a live steam railroad and to foster a sprit of cooperation among live steam railroaders.
We are a group of people who enjoy trains and railroading. Our members operate various
scales of miniature railway equipment, with one-eight scale, one-twelfth scale and gauge
one being the most prevalent.
Some of our members own locomotives and/or cars. However, owning equipment is not a
requirement for membership.
Our 5 acre club site has 3,200 feet of 1½" scale (7¼" gauge), 3,000
feet of 1" scale (4¾" gauge), an 800 foot multi-gauge loop and a 219 foot dual-tracked
Gauge 1 loop. There are multiple unloading facilities as well as handicapped facilities
for our members and visitors.
