Reading/L&NE Slatington, PA, Question

Postby thebigham » Mon Feb 04, 2008 10:17 am

Where did the L&NE interchange with the Reading?

Did the L&NE own the bridge across the river? Or did the Reading?

The L&NE abandoned their tracks to Slatington in 1934. When did the Reading abandon their tracks into Slatington?

Thanks,

Chris

I kind of answered my questions:

Here is a topo map of Slatington:

Looks like the L&NE interchanged with the Reading in Slatington.

The L&NE owned the bridge across the river. I've tried to find some pics of it online. No luck so far.

The Reading also interchanged with the LNE in Catasauqua and Tamaqua.
