JIM THORPE, Pa. — For the first time since 4-8-4 No. 2102 was returned to operation earlier this year, Reading & Northern ran an “Iron Horse Ramble” excursion featuring both that ex-Reading Co. locomotive and its Baldwin light Pacific, No. 425, built for the Gulf, Mobile & Northern. Here, crowds gather around the two locomotives in Jim Thorpe. Trains Magazine offered live streaming from today’s trip; a recording of that video remains available on the Trains Facebook page.

  1. Andy Mueller CEO of Reading and Northern has done an awesome job with that railroad both freight and tourist wise. Railroaders like him are rare nowadays. The video on their Facebook Book page is amazing as well as his interview with Kevin Gilliam on the same video.
