Long time club member Larry Southwick in 2010 final realized a lifelong dream by starting construction on a massive basement empire. Named the Enola & Western, the railroad features scenes from the PRR Middle Division including Horseshoe Curve and Altoona, PA. The layout also features a compressed version of Rockville Bridge and Enola yard. A branchline in the middle of the layout adds a variety of switching options to the operations of the layout.

The club has worked hard building the layout over the last few years and Larry has allowed the organization to use his layout as a place for clinics - giving members a chance to gain experience before going home to work on their own projects.
