Click on It's full steam ahead for Reading and Northern Railroad (http://readingeagle.com/article.aspx?id=116733) to read a recent Reading Eagle article. For those who may not know, A.T. hikers cross this rail line just south of Port Clinton. Go here (http://whiteblaze.net/forum/vbg/showimage.php?i=28524) to view an image from WhiteBlaze's gallery of a sign indicating the A.T.'s route through Reading and Northern's rail yard.
