Railfan Pictures of the Week - 08/27/2006

Reading Company Bethlehem Main Lansdale PA

In the words of Dale Woodland

Literally in my back yard. We lived in the Imperial Arms Apartments 1966-1970. The photos posted here were taken out my back window or off the front terrace. These were before my first slide camera in 1970. Nice variety here from first to brand new second generation Reading power as well as MU's and RDC's. Hated to leave that apartment, but larger family and a home won out.
