note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

HORSESHOE CURVE

Continuation Page 1


NOTE:  HTML originally limited my pages to 30kB!  Thus, I was forced to add separate pages to fit the lengthy stories of the prototype and HO (1:87.1) Berlinerwerke; both the Berlinerwerke-HO (HO-Scale - 1:87.1) and Berlinerwerke-Z (Z-Scale - 1:220) stories are now on their own separate pages.


INDEX

    (Truncated - see main Horseshoe Curve Page)

[APOLOGIA - I can't possibly keep track of all the interconnected linking on the Horseshoe Curve and Berlinerwerke-HO pages so I'm just posting the latter and reposting the former without 100% link correlation at first; hopefully I'll catch up with the links "one of these days".]

On the main Horseshoe Curve Page:
    Prototype Horseshoe Curve Story

On this Continuation Page 1:
    Dimensions of the Horseshoe Curve - with HO (1:87.1) Scale Equivalents -
        a mile-by-mile and even foot-by-foot guide to the Curve.

On the Continuation Page 2:
    {no content yet}

On the Continuation Page 3:
    Dimensions of the Horseshoe Curve in N (1:160) and Z (1:220) Scales

On the Continuation Page 4:
    Satellite Photo of the Horseshoe Curve, with description of features.
    Muleshoe Curve (New Portage Secondary).

On the Berlinerwerke-HO Page:
    Berlinerwerke-HO Saga, et seq.

For other PRR and RR links, see the main PRR and RR pages.


The BERLINERWERKE (HO - 1:87.1) Story, the story of the HO Berlinerwerke pike.
The full prototype story will appear shortly.
The Z-scale (1:220) Berlinerwerke-Z Saga is on a separate page.


HORSESHOE CURVE and ALTOONA-CRESSON AREA DIMENSIONS and FEATURES

Here, at long last (17 Jul 99), after having had to be reformatted from an overly-elaborate MultiMate 4 word processing document to a WordPerfect 6.0 document, with endless details to be adjusted, is my magnum opus, the full stretch of the PRR from Sunnyside Yard in New York City to the Curve and on through to Pittsburgh!


HORSESHOE CURVE and ALTOONA-CRESSON AREA DIMENSIONS       Rev.:  18 Jul 99
  and FEATURES                                      Orig. Date:  03 Feb 90

PRR terminology (where it differs from USGS terminology) is underlined.

Curve Elevations (U. S. Geological Service contour line track crossings and track chart points)
  and Distances [as measured from Philadelphia and also as shown from Baker's (Kittaning) Run].

Grade initiations and ends and features shown in WB order unless otherwise noted.

R x x'and L x x' = Right and Left curvature in degrees and minutes of arc (R'=50/sin θ).

u. g. br. = under-grade bridge (crossing under the tracks) and o. g. br. = over-grade bridge.

Mileage specified (x,xxx') is from immediate preceeding (or in some cases from next) milepost.

Track information is from undated PRR track charts in "Horseshoe Curve" and from "Pennsylvania
    Railroad 1950 Track Charts", both by Rails Northeast, Box 135, East McKeesport, PA 15035.
    In disputed matters, data from the former is marked with an asterisk (*). Other elevations
    and benchmarks (BM) from USGS 7.5 Minute Series Topographic Maps (Altoona, Bellwood, Cresson,
    and Hollidysburg Quadrangles, plus extensive on-site examination. Note that many of the
    features listed have long since disappeared or even been changed beyond easy recognition.

NOTE:  The HO scale dimensions which follow were calculated with a scale factor of 87.1,
NOT with the more exact 87.08571428571-- (25.4÷3.5×12)!

Well, the formatting didn't come out quite right in HTML (using <pre> - </pre>) but you probably get the picture.  I am learning HTML Tables and will reformat this properly as soon as I get the method under my belt.

The foregoing compilation was made in preparation to model the Horseshoe Curve in true HO scale (nominally 85" radius) and the tunnels (shortened) by:

The foregoing table shows prototype and equivalent HO scale (1:87.1) dimensions; what follows will be a conversion table which will also list N (1:160) and Z (1:220) scales.  For other scales, use the Scale Conversion Table on my Model RR page 4, although, except perhaps for S (1:64) or TT (1:128) there's not much likelihood anyone will model the full Horseshoe Curve in any larger scale.  Of course, Pennsy actually did model it once at a scale of exactly 12" = 1'!

Consider that -Z scale (1:440) is exactly half of Z, so the nominal radius of the curve would only be about 17¼", or less than 3' across from outer track to outer track with room for embankments.  Better yet, for the apartment dweller or single-roomer, you could always get a Tiny Trains TY Scale (1:900) layout, for which the curvature would approximate <8½:" (<1½' across)!    rev (22 Feb 2011)

In the new T-Scale (1:450), it would be all of 34" across!   new (22 Feb 2011)

Just as a reference for westerners, the nominal HSC curvatures of 637.3' and 604.7' (623.1' avg.), and of only 528' for the Sunnyside Yard loop (which daily carries full-length passenger stock), can be compared to the nominal radius at the Tehachapi Loop of some 627".   rev.gif (15 Feb 2012)

The lay of the land is rugged, with the spine of the Alleghenies running SSW-NNE at 2,400', as shown on my 1975 sketch map on my main HSC page, at "Layout Expansion through the Horseshoe Curve", entitled "RR MAP OF CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA".   The runs (ravines) fall ESE away from the crest, and the RoW comes SSE from Altoona, climbs ENE up on the north side of Burgoon Run, crosses over Kittaning Run, slices the face of Kittaning Peak SSW on the HSC, crosses Glenwhite Run, climbs around the two 2,400' peaks, and heads up ENE on the north side of Sugar Run to the tunnels under the crest.  Once on the west slope, it's a short ride downhill south through Cresson and then a relatively straight and gradual long downhill drop west to Johnstown and Pittsburgh.  If you follow the sketch map, you can readily see how rapidly the old lines climb, on fierce grades and/or tighter curves, compared to the newer one.  Don't forget that much of the Old Portage RR was a steep cableway, with with ancient little locos used only on the "levels".  Hollidaysburg is at 950', Altoona at 1,170', and the crest inside the tunnels is at around 2,130'!

On my Model Railroad page 4, I added a Railroad Grades chart, with the major Horseshoe Curve grades included.
