SCHUYLKILL HAVEN, Pa. – As many railfans around the country know, the massive 2102 steam locomotive is being rebuilt. The T-1, 4-8-4 wheel arrangement takes much time and effort to repair into working order. At this point, several Reading & Northern workers and contractors are working five to six days per week to get 2102 back on the rails.
The tender is 95% completed and awaiting final paint. The stoker trough, lubrication lines, plates and slides were all finished up in the past few months.
