RBM&N Sets Fall Foliage Excursions

September 30, 2020

Reading Blue Mountain & Northern will run fall foliage excursions on weekends starting Oct. 3.

The trains will operate with rail diesel car equipment on weekends to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, from Reading Outer Station, Port Clinton, and Tamaqua.

Tickets are $39 per person if boarding at Reading Outer Station and Port Clinton, and $24 per person from Tamaqua.

There will be a four-hour layover in Jim Thorpe where the railroad said passengers can explore the town’s shops, restaurants and museums.

Tickets information is available by calling 610-562-2102 or going to the tourist railroad’s website at https://www.rbmnrr-passenger.com/schedule

In an unrelated development, the RBM&N’s parent company Reading & Northern Railroad has hired Eric Peters as vice president of transportation and safety.

He will succeed the retiring Thomas Cook. Peters currently works at Norfolk Southern, which he joined 14 years ago as a management trainee.

Peters is now the NS superintendent of the Harrisburg Division.

In a news release, R&N said it interchanges with NS’s Harrisburg Division and Peters therefore has a good perspective of the regional railroad’s operations.

R&N is based in Port Clinton, Pennsylvania, and serves 70 customers in nine eastern Pennsylvania counties.
