2004: Reading Railroad Freight Trains

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 2004 features the many different types of freight trains and freight locomotives of the Reading Railroad. The calendar’s six color and seven black and white pictures span a time period from the early 1900’s to the 1970's. The photos cover both steam and diesel locomotives, and the locations include Bethlehem, Birdsboro, Fleetwood, Frackville, Gordon, Hagerstown, Norristown, Philadelphia, Reading, and Royersford.

Each picture has a detailed caption, plus the calendar pages include dates of events both 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)
