    Ok as somebody suggested I'm putting it out here for some names for my little slice of the pie. I model in the 1950's era and it should be something fun with a fictituos PRR reference. I hope that this is vague enough info to come up with some winners. What else could I tell you guys that would help?

    Hi belg,
    Well, let's see, if you want to parody the Pennsy ("The Standard Raillroad of the World" ) you could call it something like the Pennsylvania Substandard Division. :) Not making any implications about your work, by the way! :D

    I suppose it wouldn't be politically correct to call it the "Shaker Central", or the "Penndutch Lines", or the "Pennamish & Eastern":D :D :D

    You could go my route and model a ficticious branch of a real railroad, which give me the Central New Jersey's Millbrook Branch
