2102 Test Runs to be Done Today

The first test will be made today by former Reading Company 4-8-4 No. 2102.

The locomotive, now owned by the Reading & Northern, recently was fired up as it neared completion of a $2.4 million restoration. R&N said there would be no schedule for the test runs.

The T-1 type locomotive last ran in the early 1990s before being placed in storage in 1991.

Restoration work began in 2016. R&N also owns a 4-6-2, No. 425.

Public excursions behind the 2102 will begin on May 28 and continue through early September.

Tickets range from $99 to $299 per person and can be purchased by phone at 610-562-2102 or at www.rbmnrr-passenger.com
