Great shots. I think on one near the end, with the caption "The Reading's Wall Street, running on former Leigh Valley iron, hits the diamond with the ex-Reading's tracks in Manville Yard on the final morning of operation", LV and Reading are reversed. (Unless I'm mistaken, the train ran on the ex-Reading track at Manville to cross the ex-LV, on its way up to the CNJ. Note this diamond no longer exists). JS

Why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?
