Remarks & Notes 
Reading engine #218 is another of the G3 Pacifics still holding down duty on PRSL runs at this date. The PRSL Baldwin AS-16 diesels are invading though, and the Pacific's service lives are nearing an end, pressed into duty for the summer service despite being just six years old, devolution (or is that diesel-volution) is ruthless and shows no mercy. 218 was the second-to-last engine built by the Reading shops in the class of '48.
