Post subject:  American Freedom Train in King of Prussia PA Sept 1976

My coworker has converted some old family films which show the AFT in King of Prussia parked on the North Abrams Industrial Track. From some quick research that I've done, the train was parked on Sear's siding and Today's Post siding with the 2101 and water tender displayed on the main, hot all four days so that it could move if the Reading had to switch the branch. I'm unable to find track charts for this branch. I know where Sear's siding is because the building is still there and re-purposed, but I'm curious as to where Today's Post was located. My company leases a building off of 3rd Ave which had rail access when the branch was still active. We were just wondering if maybe we had the AFT parked at our site, albeit before we leased the building.
