What's the difference between a GP40-2 and GP39-2? What year did the Reading dieselize? How many tracks were in Rutherford Yard? This board focuses on a discussion of questions or issues concerning the "prototype" Reading Company and its predecessors. While the aim of this board is to serve as a resource for prototype information for modeling purposes, general discussion and sharing of knowledge is also encouraged.

Welcome to The Reading Modeler Forum! We hope you'll find this a welcome addition to the various online forums elsewhere on the web.

A few ground rules for the benefit of all:

Model Railroading is Fun. Please keep the discourse civil and friendly at all times. That includes the obvious warnings regarding profanities, etc., but also common courtesy such as basic respect for your fellow users. While it's certainly OK to disagree on the best approach to a particular modeling issue, let's remember that this is a HOBBY, and let's be respectful of one another's ideas and perspectives.

Thanks for your cooperation, and enjoy!
