R&N Announces New Destination for Tourist Trains

Pennsylvania-based Reading & Northern will return excursion train service to the 146-year-old depot in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania.

The railroad plans to build a new boarding platform at the station, a project that will be funded by a public-private partnership with the borough of Tamaqua.

Construction is expected to begin this spring with the first trains leaving the station in time for the community’s Summerfest on June 21.

R&N said it will also offer “ride-and-dine” trips from its new Reading Outer Station to Tamaqua. Trains will leave Reading in mid-afternoon and stop at the new Tamaqua train station, where riders disembark and dine at a local restaurant.
