Remarks & Notes 
Hometown Hero At Hometown Trestle. With its restoration essentially complete and a few smaller test runs under its belt, the Reading & Northern Railroad decided put RBMN T-1 2102 (4-8-4) to the real test. Not having operated from 1991 until this month, the engine was solo on the assignment to move 50 coal hoppers from North Reading, Pa to Jim Thorpe, PA and back to Tamaqua, PA on Tuesday, April 26, 2022. Just a few miles from ending its day, the train is seen crossing the Hometown Trestle in Hometown, PA. The 50 empty coal hoppers were determined to be approximately the same weight as the planned 18 car consists that this local fan favorite engine will pull in the very near future. A word from the wise: expect crowds onboard and along the route.
