Reading-and-Northern-12-6-2015 (9)

Christmas is special for many reasons but from a railfan’s perspective the holiday’s are a time for trains!… Train around the Christmas tree and lots of full-size Christmas trains!…

In keeping with fond traditions, PADCO in conjuction with the Reading, Blue Mountain & Northern and Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway launched two Santa Claus Specials from the Union Station in Pottsville, Pa.

The train rides ran towards Port Clinton and were approximately 70-80 minutes long. Tickets were a reasonable $13 for adults and $9 for children 3-12 yrs old. And to make it even more affordable, 1 child (3-12 yrs old) rode free with each paying adult.

The event drew out hundreds of riders (as would be expected) and also dozens of railfans (as would also be expected!). It’s shown here on December 5, 2015 @ Pottsville Union Station having completed its excursions for the day.
