I have been helping the Anthracite Railroads Historical Society maintain this website in the memory of Ed Schaller since 2007. Ed started this site in an attempt to share the information he gathered and the experiences he had when building his HO scale 1970s-era LVRR New York Division and the models that populated it. Responses to his efforts encouraged Ed to expand the scope of the website to cover earlier time periods and other scales, and he was always looking for help.
If you have data on the LVRR or models of it that you would like to share, please let me know via email at golarimer at gmail dot com (subbing in the ‘at’ symbol and period, as well as eliminating the spaces in the address). I hope I’ll be able to include your name to the list of contributors at the bottom of this page. The LVRR Modeler site also contains articles on how to model the prototype LVRR. Even if you can’t offer data, articles or editorial help, you can improve the Lehigh Valley Railroad Modeler through your suggestions for improvements. Let me know where the holes and mistakes are, what other things you’d like to see, or how I could improve what’s already on the site. Whether you participate as a contributor or a reader – Enjoy!
