The ARHS is planning on selling books at our Lehigh Gap property from the very large collection of the late Perry Billington. Most or all are in mint condition with dust jackets (where applicable). Hardcovers are $25, Softcovers are $15. Come to the book sale and get some great deals for your collection! We don't have an inventory listing to share, as there are too many. However, the collection is approximately 2-3 full cargo vans. Many titles are rare or out-of-print. Titles focus on mostly US-based railroading, industries, and some international railroading and industries.

Location is at the intersection of PA-873 and 248 along the Lehigh River in Lehigh Gap (mailing address = Walnutport). 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.) Driveway will be marked day-of the event.
