Harrisburg Division

Post by No1Conrailfan » Mon May 30, 2005 4:06 pm

Greetings to everyone. I am working on some research information for a futuer book. I am looking for information on the Harrisburg/ Philadelphia line. I believe that it started near Phoenixville just west of Black Rock Tunnel, & went to MP 107 at the fuel pad in Harrisburg. I am not sure if this was the Philadelphia Division of the Harrisburg division. NS has recreated the Harrisburg Division thus what I am basing my research on is Philadelphia to Harrsiburg & Allentown to Harrisburg. I live in the Reading area so I am mostly familur with that area but any information that anyone can provide will greatly be apprciated. Thank you so much for your help. Phil Banks

Hi all,
I live in the Pottstown area. The Harrisburg Division started and end at MP.29 That`s right before you go over the Schuylkill River and through the tunnel.
Phill, If you would like, I be glad to give you a tour of the line between Cromby and Reading. I know of a lot of history between thoses two towns.

Have fun,
Leonard.
