Remarks & Notes 
Reading & Northern's RDC set captured staged at the railroad's "Outer Station" parking lot in Reading, PA. The original Outer Station was located a few miles south of here, closer to the center of the city of Reading. It was a Victorian structure built in 1874 that housed division offices and once featured wooden trainsheds on three sides. It was in the middle of a wye connecting lines from Allentown, Pa.; Pottsville, Pa.; Philadelphia; and Harrisburg, Pa. It closed in 1969 and burned in 1978. A second station, known as Franklin Street, was in the center of the city.

Starting Memorial Day weekend, each year, since 2017, the Reading & Northern began to offer scheduled passenger trains between the new "station" and Jim Thorpe, Pa. The RDC's follow the former Reading route from Reading, past Port Clinton to Haucks, Pa., on the Catawissa Branch, then turn onto the former Jersey Central Nesquehoning Valley Branch to Jim Thorpe, Pa., about 60 miles each way.
