2006: Mainlines of 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!

The RCT&HS Year 2006 railroad calendar is now available and its theme is “Mainlines of the Reading Railroad,” featuring photos from all of the Reading’s various mainline through routes. Lines covered include the Bethlehem Line, the New York Line, the Crossline, the Catawissa, and of course the original Mainline itself. The 2006 calendar has eight color pictures and five black and white pictures, spanning both the steam and diesel eras. Photo locations include Alburtis, Allentown, Bethlehem, East Penn Junction, Hershey, Lurgan, Pottstown, Quakertown, Rupert, Shawmont, Tamaqua, and West Trenton.

Each picture has a detailed caption, plus the calendar pages include dates of events both important and obscure in Reading Railroad history. The 2006 calendar opens to an 11" x 17" size, wire-bound, and is printed on high quality glossy paper. Please order soon so as not to miss out on a full year’s enjoyment of these vintage photos of big engines in action on the Reading’s mainlines.
