Album Info:0-6-0 Steam Locomotive 113 from the Jersey Central Railroad pulled the Santa Train out of Minersville, PA for the fifth year in a row. I've gone to all five with an increasing number of grandchildren. It's a great family-friendly operation.

CNJ 113 highballs past the Schuylkill Haven Depot on the old Reading Company main line.
Title:  CNJ 113 highballs past the Schuylkill Haven Depot on the old Reading Company main line.
Description:  RBMN maintains for higher track speeds on the former main line through Schuylkill Haven than on the Minersville branch, so Project 113 gets to show off for the trackside enthusiasts who gather at Schuylkill Haven depot. The 250 on the smokebox number plate is a nod to the 250th anniversary of hard coal mining in Schuylkill County, PA.
