The Reading Company published its "Freight Shippers Guide" for several years. The Guide included a list of all stations on the Reading, and all customers served at those locations. It also included several interesting pieces of information useful to modelers, such as the facilities available at each station (i.e., cranes, cattle pens, etc.) for the shipment and delivery of freight. While these guides are becoming somewhat rare, we've scanned and PDF'd a copy of the 1954 version of the Guide, and are making it available online as a series of PDF files for your reference. We hope you find this information useful in your Reading modeling efforts!
TECHNICAL NOTE: Due to the size of the guide, we've broken it down into 4 separate PDF files for downloading. After downloading sections 1 through 4, if desired you can combine them into a single PDF file using Adobe Acrobat or your preferred PDF program.
