New Material Posted - Freight Car Diagrams!

Written by Conductor

It's been a busy winter outside of modeling interests here at the Reading Modeler, which has unfortunately prevented us from making many updates to the site.  However, I'm happy to report that we DO have a new addition to share!  Member Rob Hinkle has graciously shared a scanned PDF copy of Reading Company Freight Car Diagrams.  We've housed this document in the Freight Car section of the Rolling Stock Reference.  Click here to go to that page, where you can download and view the diagrams (60MB download).

Today's Image

Did You Know?

October, 1962
Loss of mail and Railway Express Agency contracts prompts severe cuts in passenger service, including annulment of all service to Shamokin, and the Allentown-Harrisburg trains, and a reduction on remaining routes. RDCs replace most locomotive-hauled trains, freeing former passenger locomotives for freight service.
