Review of Reading & Northern 425 Swan Song Fifteen Year Finale DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
This program covers some of the last runs of Reading & Northern #425 before it went down for it's 15-year inspection and overhaul. It begins with a weekend of Autumn Leaf Excursions in October of 2021 before #2102 returned to steam. The following year #425 appeared only a handful times, pulling just a single Autumn Leaf Excursion on November 5th. Coverage of this trip features a mix of traditional runbys and in-cab footage. The final segment of the video looks at the Tamaqua Christmas trains on December 3rd and 4th 2022: the second-to-last trips before the locomotive was taken out of service.

Total running time: 1 hour 51 minutes
