In the day’s last light, Anthracite Railway SW1 55 spots the one car that it has brought from the Conrail interchange at Pottstown on a siding in Boyertown, Pennsylvania. The switcher began life as PRR 9396, later becoming PC/Conrail 8556. The ATRW, not associated with the Anthracite Railroads Historical Society, shared common ownership with the Octoraro Railway. ATRW operated the former Pottstown & Colebrookdale Branch Pottstown – Boyertown, PA) and the upper end of the Perkiomen Branch (Emmaus – Red Hill, PA) when they were first spun off by Conrail. Today this line is the tourist hauler Colebrookdale Railroad.
