FROM BLW/ZT... The Reading Company Passenger Set!

The Reading Company did not operate extensive long distance passenger train service but it did field a
number of named trains, most famous of which was the streamlined Crusader,which connected Philadelphia and Jersey City.
The Crusader was intended to provide high-end service to compete with the PRR coach-only 'Clockers'.

Other trains in the fleet included the Harrisburg Special (between Jersey City and Harrisburg),
King Coal (between Philadelphia and Shamokin, Pennsylvania), North Penn(between Philadelphia and Bethlehem),
Queen of the Valley (between Jersey City and Harrisburg), Schuylkill (between Philadelphia and Pottsville),
and Wall Street (betweenPhiladelphia and Jersey City).

The Reading participated in the joint operation of The Interstate Express with the
Central Railroad Company of New Jersey and the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad,
with service between Philadelphia and Binghamton, NY. In addition, the Reading offered
through passenger car service with the Lehigh ValleyRailroad via their connection at Bethlehem. (from Wikipedia)
