I got a call Saturday morning that the Reading 4-8-4 No. 2100 was on Norfolk Southern train 364 between Bellevue and Rockport yard.  I hurried over to Olmsted Falls where I caught the move.

I then went to Rockport and got some more photos.  NS then tied the move down in the yard, although it is visible from nearby Interstate 480.

The 2100 is going to the roundhouse at West 3rd Street in Cleveland for restoration and conversion back to a coal burner. It had previously been converted to burn oil.
