R&N to Buy Pennsylvania Rail Line

May 8, 2021

Pennsylvania-based Reading & Northern will buy a 19.5-mile rail line from Carbon County, Pennsylvania, for $4.7 million.

The county has owned the line since 1981, buying it from Conrail for $991,500 to prevent it from being abandoned.

The line was operated by the Carbon & Schuylkill Railroad starting in 1990. That railroad is now overseen by Reading & Northern owner Andy Muller.

R&N plans to rebuild the line in a $1 million project.
