Model Information: Bachmann first released this model in 2012 and it is part of their "Silver" series along with the similar ACF 50.5' Outside-Braced boxcar. It is (amazingly for Bachmann) a true 3rd generation rolling stock model. It "checks the box" with all three critical Gen3 features. It has metal wheels, body-mount couplers and nice detail parts. Furthermore it also features detailed brake rigging and operating sliding doors! This model is not simply a basic redo of older Bachmann toolings but a new "high-end" 3rd generation model.

Road Name History:
The Reading Company, usually called the Reading Railroad as was enshrined by the Monopoly board game, and boasting a predecessor company officially founded under the name the Philadelphia and Reading Railway Company, operated in southeast Pennsylvania and neighboring states from 1833 through 1976. Until the decline in anthracite loadings in the Coal Region after World War II, it was one of the most prosperous corporations in the United States.

Reduced coal traffic coupled with highway competition and short hauls forced it into bankruptcy in the 1970s. The railroad was merged into Conrail in 1976, but the corporation lasted into 2000, disposing of real estate holdings.

Brand/Importer Information:
