Remarks & Notes 
One of the great Reading Class T-1s romps through the Lebanon Valley in this scene from a slide scanned from the collection of the late Hen Westenberger. This appears to be the "Reading Ramble" excursion from Wayne Junction (Philadelphia) to Gettysburg, based on the 5-62 date of the slide. (The Friday, April 27th edition of the "Gettysburg Times" mentions the "Reading Ramble" coming to town "this Sunday.") The locomotive in the photo may possibly be the 2100, which was replaced with the 2102 at Rutherford Yard for the final leg to Gettysburg, according to some accounts. The photo was taken from atop the giant slag pile that was removed to build the Boscov's Department Store and the Lebanon Valley Mall, opening in 1972 and 1975, respectively.
