Join Dale Woodland from the Reading Technical and Historical Society as he discusses shows what has happened to the lines of the Reading Railroad since they disappeared into the Conrail System in 1976.

Photographs and maps include larger railroads like Norfolk Southern and CSX as well as a myriad of smaller railroads that serve businesses on what were Reading tracks. SEPTA passenger service on former Reading Lines is included. Before and after photographs at the same locations are used to illustrate the changes.
