Meatloaf's Rail Adventures #1 Part 1

Meatloaf Gets a Series

Meatloaf's first rail trip was part of our World Animal Day post, but since he loves these trips so much it made sense to branch out. This will be the first official Meatloaf's Rail Adventures post and it has two parts because he posed so well.

Reading and Northern Railroad

The full name of this railroad is the Reading Blue Mountain and Northern Railroad. It is a functioning freight railroad. They also have a passenger, scenic railroad division called the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway.

On his first adventure, Meatloaf could be found in a New York Central motorcar. It was an open car with a cab. This time he got to ride in a SOO Line motorcar...completely enclosed. The trip started out in Port Clinton and it was chilly. He tried to drink some of Xyra's tea. 

He got to stretch his legs when they stopped. The scenery was beautiful.

Sometimes he checks out the motorcar controls.

They stopped for lunch in Pottsville. It was so windy he wanted to get back in the motorcar.

Then they headed off to Minersville. 

Then it was time to head back to Port Clinton and home.

Come back tomorrow for the rest of the adventure. 

Best wishes,
