The Reading's "West Reading Branch" was an industrial branch in the City of Reading. Extending from a connection with the Lebanon Valley Branch along 3rd Street, the branch ran along the Schuylkill River (paralleling the PRR's Schuylkill Division trackage) and served a variety of industries in the area. The branch also had its own freight house and yard at Spruce Street. The branch (as well as the PRR trackage) was severely damaged in 1972 by Hurricane Agnes, but still exists today as Norfolk Southern's "Richmond Industrial Track."
