1951 Reading Company Interchange Locations

Written by Conductor

An SW-1500 gets some TLC on a snowy night at Rupert, PA on the Catawissa Branch.  This was an interchange point between the Reading and the DL&W, later Erie-Lackawanna.  Photo courtesy Jim Gerofsky.

The following list details interchange points on the Reading system by connecting railroad, and is taken from a Reading Company document dated September 1, 1951. This information was used by conductors to accurately detail movement of cars in their wheel reports, as well as freight agents and yardmasters. It was important that these reports be accurate and timely, since per diem settlement charges to foreign roads were based upon this information. This information may be of use when developing a car forwarding system for your Reading layout, in order to realistically route a car to an off-line destination via an interchange. For information about developing a car forwarding system, you can refer to the Operations Special Interest Group (SIG) website, which includes a robust bibliography of operations-related articles in the model railroad press.  Check the Downloads section for downloadable files that can be used to operate your Reading layout in a prototypical manner.
