Valley Live Steamers (PVLS)
is located in Southwick Massachusetts.
The track at PVLS consists of 4580 feet of ground level rails and
1140 feet of elevated track. The elevated track has two gauges. The
smallest is 3.5 inch gauge, 3/4" to the foot scale and the next is
4.75 inch gauge, 1" to the foot scale. The gauge is the dimension
between the rails. The ground level track is 7.25 gauge and most
of the engines on this track are made to 1.5 inches to the foot scale.
We have recently added support for
Gauge 1 track as well with two layouts. The first is a large double
loop on aluminum tables for track powered engines. The second layout
is generally used to run live steam engines and it has both ground
and elevated sections. The elevated section makes steaming up easier
