November 12, 2021 will feature a pair of topics from Tom Nemeth. First, Tom will detail equipment and operations on the Erie-Lackawanna Railroad’s Bloomsburg Branch and its Lackawanna origins. Second, for a change of pace, he will present on the (now defunct) CN narrow gauge railway on the island of Newfoundland.
Anthracite Railroads Historical Society, Inc. is continuing our popular sale of books, railroadiana, and more at our Lehigh Gap property. Most books are in mint condition with original dust jackets. Prices range from $1 (softcovers) to $25 (hardcovers). Volume discounts provided, so come and make us an offer.
Come to the book sale and get some great deals for your collection! Many titles are rare or out-of-print. Titles focus on mostly US-based railroading, industries, and some international railroading and industries.
New inventory has been added since our last sale, so be sure to come out, even if you’ve attended prior. Also available are models, duplicate slides, airline books, automobile books & models, WW2 books, local history books, and back issues of our magazine, Flags, Diamonds, & Statues. An ARHS sales table will be present.
Open to the public; bring a friend/neighbor, there is something for everyone! Visitors will be asked to maintain social distancing and we may have to limit the amount of people inside at a time. Masks are mandatory while indoors. Be prepared and respectful of your fellow railfans.
The location is at the intersection of PA-873 and 248 along the Lehigh River in Lehigh Gap. The driveway is technically on the south side of PA-873 at the intersection between the NS Lehigh Line (former CNJ) and PA-248. (The Appalachian Trail crosses the entrance of the driveway along PA-873.) The driveway will be marked the day of the event.
