Excellent pix Tom!:cool:

I developed an affinity for the RDG during the 3 years that my wife and I lived in Reading, PA (it had long since been absorbed into Conrail by that time:( ) It was those Sunday drives thru the Eastern PA countryside, visiting mining towns like Tamaqua, that really rekindled my interest in mrr after being away from it for 15 years.

Thanks folks!

I know what you mean. I spent the first 25 years of my life living 500 feet from the B&O Philadelphia Subdivision. I can remember sitting at the kitchen window watching the trains roll-by. Along with the B&O and C&O power there were many Reading run-through trains.
