Anthracite Railroads Historical Society, Inc. is hosting a book sale at our Lehigh Gap property on Saturday, December 3, 2022. This collection of books has been graciously donated by our members for the purpose of raising funds for ongoing ARHS operations. Many titles are rare or out-of-print. Titles focus on U.S.and Canadian railroading; industries; and some international titles. New inventory has been added since our last sale, so be sure to come out, even if you’ve attended before. Donated hard cover books are priced at $25, soft cover $10; with volume pricing offered for purchases over $100.

Also available are duplicate slides, railroad scrapbooks, timetables, and other railroad items. ARHS will have available for sale all in-stock books, models, in-print copies of our flagship magazine Flags, Diamonds, & Statues, and our extensive inventory of CDs featuring presentations from past ARHS conventions. Cash, check, or credit cards are accepted.

Open to the public; bring a friend/neighbor/fellow railfan, there is something for everyone. Just in time for the holiday shopping season!

The location is at the intersection of PA-873 and 248 along the Lehigh River in Lehigh Gap. The driveway is located on the south side of PA-873 at the exit point of the Lehigh River bridge. The driveway will be marked the day of the event.
