The purpose of this website is to provide an "electronic interchange" where individuals interested in model railroading and railroad history pertaining to the Reading Company and related railroads can obtain and share both prototype and model-related information. Just as cars are set out and picked up at the interchange, we hope that the content presented on the site will be dynamic as well, with new content continually being added as information is shared.

We will do our best to share information provided to us as quickly as possible; however, your patience is appreciated, as this is a volunteer labor of love in between full-time jobs, families, and our own modeling activities! Please don't be afraid to provide constructive criticism regarding the site's design or the manner in which content is organized and presented. If there's something you'd like to see included on the site, or more importantly, something you'd like to SHARE, please let us know! Our goal is to include as much information as possible that is of interest to those of you viewing the site,so please don't be shy about making your opinions known. Most of all, ENJOY the site, and THANKS for visiting!
