Ken Humphreys' Florida, Pennsylvania and West Virginia Railroad HO Layout
P&WRR webmaster Ken Humphreys originally started building his Florida, Pennsylvania and West Virginia Railroad HO layout in 1965 in Morgantown, WV.
Upon moving to Granite Falls, NC in 1993, the original FP&WV was dismantled and was reincarnated with a much larger track plan.
The layout models areas in the West Virginia coal fields, South Florida were Ken grew up, and in its resurected form has a section patterned after the Hudson-Lenoir, NC
area near where Ken now lives. A trolley museum is also on the layout depicting the Arden Trolley Museum (now the Pennsylvania Railway Museum) in Washington, PA where
Ken worked as a motorman for many years. The 230 square foot layout fills a 13' x 17.5' room in the basement of Ken's home. The layout is fully scenicked including
signals and street and building lights. As is typical, the layout is a work in progress with further additions planned including skirting around the layout to hide
the bench work and addition of more signals. On the walls of the room above the layout are displayed an array of railroad antiques.
