SPECIAL LIMITED RELEASE!

MICRO-SCALE Muddy Creek Forks Station kit
HO scale

Micro-Scale has joined hands with us in our Capital Campaign by producing a limited run of 40 Muddy Creek Forks Station kits that will be exclusively available through the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad Historical Society.

Micro-Scale intends for these kits to benefit our Capital Campaign to purchase the Blue Collection which are official railroad documents that were sold lock, stock and barrel with the Red Lion Station. Micro-Scale would have independently sold these kits for $340.00, but agreed to discount and price them at $280.00 while releasing them at a wholesale price that would make the kits more affordable as well as a better fund-raiser. Micro-Scale will be helping to get the word out by posting our kit on its own website and referring any potential customers to the Society.

When all 40 kits are sold, the Society will have raised $5,600! You can have the opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. Not only can you be the proud owner of this fine craftsman kit and then possess, build, and enjoy this most faithful model of the Muddy Creek Forks Store and Station. You can also be a contributor to the Capital Campaign and receive a written statement from the Society Treasurer for a tax deduction as fully allowed by IRS rules.

Ma & Pa Remembered

Ma & Pa Remembered - A History of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad
by Henry C. Peden, Jr. and Jack L. Shagena, Jr.

This is the first book in almost 50 years dedicated to America’s best-loved short line railroad, the Ma & Pa. Hard bound, 8 by 10.5-inches with a dust cover, this richly illustrated book contains more than 500 pages with almost 200 in color and chronicles the history of the narrow gauge antecedent rail lines that finally came together in 1901 as the Ma & Pa. For 98 years the railroad operated as a twentieth century standard gauge line over a nineteenth century zigzagging narrow gauge roadbed. Therein was its intrinsic charm – a model railroad actually built to full scale.

In addition to 11 chapters on the railroad’s history, there are chapters on the bridges, stations, and images of every engine the Ma & Pa owned. Chapter 18 is a collection of fond memories of the Ma & Pa by those who still remember the railroad, followed by a chapter with thousands of names and occupation of those who kept the railroads running. An Epilogue recognizes a number of individuals, organizations, and groups who have preserved the memory of the Ma & Pa by their past work.

This book contains much new material gathered by the authors that heretofore has never been published. It is even described by one reviewer as “The ultimate book about America’s favorite short line railroad, the famous Ma & Pa.”

TRACK MAPS

Track maps

Right-Of-Way and Track Maps
by George Fitch

"These maps were made from my own personal master, hand-traced from the official railroad originals during many trips to the York Station. As the Founding President of the Maryland and Pennsylvania Railroad Preservation and Historical Society (now ...Railroad Historical Society), I first made available copies of these maps through the TIMETABLE. Members continued to request them, so I decided to continue making these copies available as a Society fundraiser and as a service to those desiring them." - George Fitch

Ma & Pa Fan Trip DVD

Ma & Pa Fan Trip, June 13, 1992

On June 13, 1992, Ma & Pa diesel No. 82, just repainted in its original 1950s livery, pulled a couple of roundtrip fan trips from York to Spring Grove, PA. Four privately owned passenger cars made up this train, the only time that No. 82 had ever been used to pull a fan trip.

Starting as No. 82 came out of the enginehouse at Princess Street and then passed by the M&P's former station at York on East Market Street, Rudy Fischer captured on videotape most of the events that took place that day, including filming the train from trackside at many grade crossings between York and Spring Grove.

This DVD contains just over an hour of footage taken that day.
