Regrettably with the exception of FP7A #900 (which is part of the Society's motive power collection) and the trainset behind it (owned by the State of Connecticut and on loan to the Danbury Railway Museum), all of the locomotives and rolling stock that appear in the above photos below have long since vanished. Fortunately many photos were taken of the Reading to forever preserve in film what many of us recall as the “golden age” of railroading. We hope you enjoy your trip back into the past!
