2102 - Return of the Iron Horse Rambles Volume 2 - Ramble Doubleheader DVD
Two and a half weeks after the second Iron Horse Ramble, the Reading & Northern announced a surprise change of schedule: the third Iron Horse Ramble would be a doubleheader, with Pacific-type locomotive #425 joining #2102 on the August 13th excursion from Reading to Jim Thorpe. This was the only time the two locomotives doubleheaded in 2022, and it was their first doubleheader since the 1988 railfan weekend on the original Blue Mountain & Reading Railroad. The 2nd volume of "Return of the Iron Horse Rambles" begins with coverage of this rare doubleheader. On a picture perfect summer day, #2102 led #425 from the new Outer Station in North Reading to Jim Thorpe in the morning, then back to the steam shop in Port Clinton in the afternoon.
On September 3rd, #2102 pulled the fourth and final Ramble of 2022 on the familiar Reading to Jim Thorpe route. Our coverage of the outbound trip features a mix of trackside footage and cameras mounted in the cab and on the locomotive. As always, #2102 put on an incredible show, marching up the steep grades of the Reading & Northern with deafening stack-talk. While the Rambles were over, it wasn't the end of the season for the big 4-8-4, as there were three Autumn Leaf Excursions scheduled for the fall. This program concludes with coverage of the first Autumn Leaf Excursion on October 1st, as #2102 again ran from North Reading to Jim Thorpe. This segment features more in-cab footage, this time on the return trip in the afternoon. The last 2 trips of the year will be covered in Volume 3 of "Return of the Iron Horse Rambles" with extensive footage from cameras mounted inside the cab and on the locomotive.
Filmed entirely in HD, this program features spectacular steam action with the loudest and most impressive locomotive operating today. This program has minimal narration (with the option to turn it on or off) and no distracting music.
