Nestled along the rails in Pennsylvania between Horseshoe Curve and Gallitzin Summit there sits the majestic MG Switch Tower. This structure depicts the historical record of wartime railroad activity in that region. Built in 1942 to assist in handling increased rail traffic the Switch Tower was overlord to all that passed during this pivotal time in our country's history. We are fortunate today to still have such structures remaining. The size, shape and design lend themselves to beautiful resin casting. This architecturally attractive building of all masonry construction from years past is honored as Lionel presents a beautiful rendition of the MG Switch Tower.
