Reading & Northern Excursion 7/13/2008

Received the following email from Kermit Geary, Jr. Photos and captions are his.
After having to work as a Conductor on our railroad...the Stourbridge RR (Honesdale, PA) on Saturday, spent Sunday following the R&N's excursion from Tunkhannock to Jim Thorpe, PA. The weather was changeable, some sun, some clouds, and some rain. Signal trouble delayed the return trip which meant the shot at M&H was taken minutes before the skies opened up on us!! Otherwise, the trip seemed to run well and was very well patronized.
