Mohnsville -Adamstown Railway

Post by pennsyboy1962 » Tue May 08, 2012 6:20 pm

Hello All, I am looking for information on both The Mohnsville -Adamstown Railway as well as it's ''paper'' parent Railroad The Reading ,Lancaster and Baltimore. Primarily looking for someone blessed enough to posess T.T. Taber III's Pennsylvania Railroads,Encyclopedia and Atlas. I am told the book covers this concern on page 44. As far as the M&A Railway I am looking for information on Engine #2, a forney type Locomotive built by H.K. Porter which had to come To this line second hand as did Engine #1( North Chicago Street Railroad #12, 0-4-0 Baldwin Steam Dummy) The Porter is an 0-4-4 configuration and any picture I have do not show the builder's plate clearly. As for the RL&B railroad I am looking for scouting and survey information concerning any thought of a sizeable bridge or tunnel in the Berks county region. I will try to resize pics to fit on this site. Thanks for taking the time to look! Paul
