Back in 1975 a short chase of RDG Alco C424 #5206 from West Conshohocken, Pa to Abrams Yard west of Bridgeport on the Reading's Main Line.
First photo just west of West Conshohocken
Second at Ford Street in Bridgeport
Third leaving Abrams Yard westbound.

Good stuff. Ig was worth the chase. I like the Reading cars right behind the motive power.

I was never able to be around the Reading before Con Rail, although I was in area a couple of times. However, since I never it went to see the Reading; it came to see me. In late 1979 and through 1980, the Mop leased some CR units, and among them were Reading GP-30's. Most of them couldn't be used as leaders, but I do have pictures of them in a consist with Mop and some GTW units the Mop had leased at the time. Good Stuff,keep it coming.
