1972 Freight Schedule now Available!

Written by Conductor

Good News!  We were finally able to publish the 1972 Reading Company Freight Schedule!  Click here to visit the page - you will notice that the info is organized much like the 1970 Reading Company Freight Schedule; however, we have not included the animations in the interest of time and getting the content up and available for viewing.  While there were some significant changes in traffic patterns between 1970 and 1972, there are plenty of similarities.  Eventually we will work to get the cross-links for the connecting trains added.  Having completed this, we'll now turn our attention to the 1968 Freight Schedule that we have in our possession.

PLEASE NOTE:  We regret to note that the source material we were graciously provided by the Reading Railroad Heritage Museum did NOT include information regarding Local Service.  Sufficient info is included in the 1970 and 1975 schedule to derive a reasonable approximation of local operations for your layout.
