Can anyone provide me with some information about the current operations of the Columbia & Reading Railway in Columbia PA?
The company has recently been sold to Freedom Rail Management and is building a locomotive and car repair facility for contract work.
I think the R&C still has only one freight customer, it's former owner, Shad Salvage.
I would also think they have severed ties with the Claremont Concord RR as well.
Do they still conduct freight operations with Alco S2 # 226?
I would like to head out that way for some photos, can someone give me a few clues as to when they operate?
