Review of Reading & Northern Seasons of Steam DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
There are small railroads that run steam locomotives with a high frequency of occurrences. There are large railroads that run steam on occasion. There are no railroads, however, like the Reading & Northern, who run steam power nearly year-round and over a vast network of lines.

This video takes a look at both locomotives that operate over R&N rails - 4-6-2 Pacific-type #425, and former Central Railroad of New Jersey 0-6-0 switcher #113. You see both locomotives run in a variety of seasons, with different consists and numerous locations.

Included is bonus footage of visiting Nickel Plate Road #765 making a trip over both Norfolk Southern and R&N rails in 2015.

Total Running Time: 152 minutes (Including Bonus Footage)
