Remarks & Notes 
The first movement of the Chessie Steam Special, a ferry move to Philadelphia and Baltimore, has come to a halt in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. If I recall correctly, the 2101 had an overheated bearing, and had the potential to be in Lansdale for a long time. My college friend who was with me had an exam to study for, and I was running on 3 hours of sleep, so we broke off and headed back to Bethlehem. Regrettably, this was the last time that I saw 2101 under steam, as it was severely damaged in a roundhouse fire a year and a half later.
