Mauch Chunk PA is dedicated to the memories of Chris Bennett and Gene Mones


web site keeps track of the progress of our HO model of the CNJ station in old Mauch Chunk, PA in the late 1940s. Unusually, we have built this in the UK!

After a visit to Jim Thorpe in 1996, we selected it as a subject and started modelling it in 2002.  We have tried to copy the prototype as far as possible using plans taken from photos. All the material we have is available on this website for you to share. 

We welcome emails from CNJ fans and fellow modellers. UK modellers are also welcome to contact us with a view to operating at exhibitions.

I am pleased to announce that Mauch Chunk is back at the Barrowmore Model Railway Club. It was also the subject of two recent articles in the Continental Modeller magazine - check the Articles page.

The Progress of our modelling on Mauch Chunk has been updated in the Progress blog that is accessible by clicking on any of the RED menu items in Our Model to the left. This has not been updated for some time as no work was carried out while the layout was in East Yorkshire. This may be remedied shortly!
Our CNJ Books sub-section has a very comprehensive, list of new and used books which includes all (most of?) the available books and DVDs with CNJ content. Please let us know if you find any more. Last updated Jan 2019.
In the CNJ section there are photos and tables of CNJ steam and diesel locomotives, and links to other web sites. There is also a look at Diesel paint schemes.
In the CNJ Models in HO section there are many photos and tables of CNJ diesel and steam locos available as HO models.
