Reading 4-8-4 2102, one of the four surviving members of the company's home-built T-1 class, was erected in 1945 using parts from 2-8-0 No. 2022. From 1960-1964 it headed early diesel-era steam excursions on the popular "Reading Rambles." During its subsequent excursion service for private owners it appeared in the guise of Delaware & Hudson No. 302 for that railroad's 1973 sesquicentennial celebration. For this assignment it was modified with a recessed headlight and smoke deflectors in an effort to make it resemble the D&H's Northerns, which had all been scrapped. We see it here on April 29, 1973 at Lacolle, Québec, on the D&H's Canadian extension (technically the Napierville Junction Railway). In 1985 No. 2102 was sold to the owner of the Blue Mountain & Reading, where it operated for several years and was then stored at the Reading & Northern's facility in Port Clinton, Pennsylvania. In 2016 the R&N announced plans to restore the locomotive to operation. Tac Foley contributed this photograph, taken by A. B. Crompton.
