Reading & Northern to Run Doubleheader Steam on Aug. 13
By Railfan & Railroad Staff
PORT CLINTON, Pa. — For the first time in more than 30 years, Reading & Northern’s two steam locomotives will operate together on the front of an excursion train. This week, R&N announced that its upcoming Iron Horse Ramble on Aug. 13, from North Reading to Jim Thorpe, Pa., will feature newly restored 4-8-4 2102 and fan-favorite 4-6-2 425.
The last time the two locomotives teamed up was in 1988, the railroad said.
