New Material Posted - Reading Company Track Drawings!

Written by Conductor

I'm happy to announce that I've FINALLY gotten around to posting some new material on the site.  A while back, through a combination of eBay purchases and the generosity of fellow Reading modeler Rob Hinkle, I came into possession of a series of Reading Company track drawings that were made by employes in order to be qualified on the various lines (so I am told by a knowledgeable source).  I've started to sort, scan and post these in the Photo Gallery.  These provide a TON of detail useful for modeling - switch and signal locations, the names of various sidings, crossings, etc. - LOTS of useful details to help accurately depict locations along the right-of-way.  We've started with the East Penn Branch, and will scan and post the remainder in the near future.  Click Here to go to the Photo Gallery to view this new material!
