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.
Reading 2102 returned to service this year for the first time in 31 years and has been wowing crowds on a series of excursions on the Pennsylvania regional road this summer. The Aug. 13 trip has already sold out, but tickets are still available for other excursions this fall.
