R&N 2102 to Make Test Run Today

Reading & Northern plans to make another test run today of its 4-8-4 No. 2102.

The Pennsylvania-based regional carrier said the test trip is expected to leave North Reading at 9 a.m. en route to Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania.

The railroad recently finished a $1.7 million overhaul of the locomotive that took six years to complete. It has been undergoing test runs since April 6.

The 2102 is a T-1 locomotive built in 1945 by the Reading Company. It is slated to pull its first public excursion on May 28.
