Tom Jacobs, the subject of our 46th episode, is a descended from several generations of Reading Company employees and like most of us, he’s had a keen interest in trains since childhood. Tom has also served as President of the Reading Hisitorical Society from 1998-2002, a non-profit corporation dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of the Reading Company.
Tom has been interested in trains since he first began riding the RDC cars from Reading, Pennsylvania to Philadelphia with his grandmother and the rest is history. He recently began construction of a 20’x 36’ layout in it’s own dedicated building and was gracious enough join him on this epic adventure.
So sit back with an ice cold long neck bottle of Yuengling beer, a giant bowl of microwaved marshmallows and enjoy.
