Rambling on the Reading DVD
Click to enlargeNote: Cover image may differ from actual product
Between 1959 and 1964 the Reading Railroad operated 59 separate trips for steam enthusiasts the length and breadth of their system. Bill McClellan and his son Rob were on hand to record most of them. Here are 22 of the very best of those excursions. These ranged from Philadelphia to Wilmington along the banks of the Brandywine River, without doubt one of the most scenic of all the Reading Rambles. Others started in New York and were brought to Trenton by the Central of New Jersey. Many went to Gettysburg; others to Hershey. But the most interesting trips were of course into the coal country - the reason for the Reading's existence. To tame the mountain grades, the railroad featured doubleheaded T-ls, often joining two steam-powered sections from different ends of the Reading system to explore the lines north to Tamaqua, Shamokin and West Milton.
