Neversink Mountain, Reading Pa

neversink mountain Commenced operating in June 30,1890, the third electric railroad in the United States, and the first electric railroad in America operated by water power. The water-power plant of 1000 HP was located at the "Big Dam" on the Schuykill River, below Reading. Edison electric generators were connected to the water turbines. The railroad was Standard Gauge, 56 lb steel rails were used. Each car had two motors of 25 HP each, these were later increased as they were not sufficient to pull the grades. The Neversink Mountain Railroad ceased operations in 1917 due to financial difficulties.

now neversink is overruned with homeless. there is several homeless people living on the properity. most of the property and train track have been taken down because of squatters living in them. now the only thing that has been left standing is the wine cellar which i almost got jumped in because there was tons of crackheads. and the last thing that is standing is the witches hat pavilion posted below. if you can get over all of the homeless and deer shit there is a beautiful view of reading ontop of the mountain and if your ever in the area i suggest you go and take a look.

Thanks that pavilion is beautiful with a pretty spectacular view.
It’s a shame that the heritage buildings and railway has been lost.
