The Reading Railroad was primarily an Anthracite coal hauling railroad that linked the ports and markets of Philadelphia to the anthracite coal regions of Pennsylvania in Pottsville. In this DVD we look at Steam and Diesel freight and passenger operations from the late 40’s to the mid 60’s.

We’ll tour the Bethlehem, East Penn and Perkiomen Branches, as well as joint operations of the CNJ in the Allentown/Bethlehem area, facilities at East Penn Yard and the Coal Regions. While typically being a coal hauler, the Reading was probably most noted for its Iron Horse Rambles and the T1 locomotives that pulled them. Along with regular steam & diesel operations, we’ll look at some of the Reading’s Iron Horse Rambles.

    As a Reading fan of all eras I have to say this is my favorite one on the great Reading Company. So much of interest from steam to diesel. I can never get enough of the mighty T-1’s and this satisfies! My only complaint is that even though it runs over and hour……it’s TOO SHORT!
