Old Zionsville, PA – Look over the scenes and it doesn’t take very much imagination to think you are looking at the real thing. Industrial clusters have a local flavor depicting Lehigh Valley Anthracite and Buckeye Pipeline. Other depictions, such as the coal company, carry the J&P Coal Co. name.

The main street has a fire department, barbershop, steakhouse, pharmacy and movie theater. A carnival is in town.

Then there are trains. Lots of them. They pop out of tunnels, chug over a trestle atop a pond of live fish, tug a long line of freight cars or just putt around a railyard jockeying cars that will make up the next line of boxcars and flatcars. A cablecar whooshes overhead.
