2002: Coal Trains on the Reading Railroad

Each year, RCT&HS produces a calendar devoted solely to the Reading Company. Please remember, membership entitles you to discounts on these calendars and many other sales items!

Our custom-run Reading Railroad Calendar for the year 2002 features coal trains and coal-related facilities from throughout the Reading’s history. The calendar’s four color and eight black and white pictures span a time period from the 1800's to the 1970s and include steam-powered trains at Mine Hill Crossing, Tamaqua, and Westwood; diesel-powered coal trains at Reading, Port Clinton and Nicetown; and facilities at St. Nicholas, Mahanoy Plane, St. Clair Yard, Tamaqua Yard, Reading Shops, and Port Richmond.

Each picture has a detailed caption, plus the calendar pages denote dates important and obscure in Reading Railroad history. The calendar opens to an 11" x 17" size, spiral-bound, on high quality glossy paper. Our previous calendars are becoming collector’s items–get this one while you can!

Price is $2.00* for members and $3.00* for non-members. (click to join)
