Album Info:Project 113, a private group of railroad enthusiasts operates a Santa train over the Minersville Branch of the Reading & Northern. This is their sixth year of operating a Santa Train, and I've taken delighted grandchildren for a ride on it each year. Passenger cars, train crew, and protect diesel locomotive provided by R&N. It's a very professional and family-friendly ride. Our 3-generation family rode the 10:30 a.m. train. My seven year old grandson joined me in photographing the 12:30 departure, and I've included some of his photos here. (taken with a play tablet w/ digital camera )
