Reading and Northern Excursion: 5/5/12

Postby SEPTAR2Newark » Sat Mar 17, 2012 8:59 am

Found this little gem....

Travel former Reading lines from Port Clinton to North Reading Yard, East Mahanoy Jct., and Mahanoy City over rare freight-only mileage on the R&N’s mainline and Mahanoy & Shamokin lines into the heart of today’s anthracite coal corridor. The train will consist of three former Lehigh Valley SW-8 diesel locomotives, ten coal hoppers, passenger cars, and caboose.

Departs Port Clinton 11:00a, returns approx. 7:00p

Ticket Prices: Coach $79, Open Air $89, Caboose $99

Extras: one-way cab ride $150, box lunch $8, bus connection from Pittston park-and-ride $20
