R&N to Reading

Postby train2 » Sun Sep 12, 2010 10:45 am

R&N's operations on the line toward Reading are rising higher on my next to do list. What is the operating pattern, days of operation and times of the trains that run to Reading?

What are the originating locations and times for any such trains?

I was told one day the times are significantly different for this train. What day and what times does this happen?

In the overall scheme of things does the change of time, if it still exists, benefit a chase or hamper?

And final question do the road and track conditions allow someone to follow the train with ease?

QARG called at 1600 in Tamaqua Sunday-Thursday. PNRG called at Port Clinton on Saturday at 0700-0730ish.

That would be Saturday morning.

Doesn't make much of a different, but you'd have less territory to cover. As the days get shorter, Saturday will be the only day when they are in daylight though.

Not always with ease, but it's possible.
