Reprints of the Reading Company 1965 Freight Service Guide are now available for purchase.

It details every customer with private sidings, or served by an RDG team track, by location. It also tabulates the hours that switch crews are available at every on-duty location.

Mostly black-and-white text, it also contains color route maps of four service areas: Philadelphia Terminal area, Philadelphia Division, Reading Division, and Shamokin District.

Here’s part of a page that shows customers in the Chester District.
