Steam Saturday: Remembering William Benson

Here is a photograph that makes me thankful for having taken around a half century ago.

In memory of Bill Benson, here is ex-Reading T-1 No. 2102 in Akron heading to Hudson to be turned on the wye there and return to Akron.

It is the break-in trip in the summer of 1968. The late Mike Ondecker and I were on a grassy hill just south of Akron Union Depot when this was taken.
