Good to see that they are back after this on-and-off situation.
Specifically, this article now states that:
Reading & Northern is bringing passenger trains back to Jim Thorpe starting Aug. 14.
After a tough winter and spring, Reading & Northern Railroad is bringing back memories of days past.
“Our train trips have always been about memories; reminding returning passenger riders of the glories of riding the rails and making new memories for people riding for the first time,” a press release from the railroad states. “Our guests travel in restored passenger cars that hearken back to a different century complete with narration of the glorious history of the region and Jim Thorpe. And our guests get to enjoy the shops and restaurants of beautiful Jim Thorpe.”
Given the COVID-19 virus, RBMN is proceeding with certain precautions to make guests feel more comfortable.
“We will be offering extra cars to allow empty seats and we welcome all of our guests to wear masks. Our Open Air cars will be on the train offering guests open air seating.”
In making this announcement, Andy Muller, owner/CEO, said. “From our beginning in the railroad business in 1983 as the Blue Mountain & Reading, we have always been committed to our passenger service. That commitment is no less strong today than it was 37 years ago.
