First encounter with R&N #425; 6/24/18
Author: warren1977

I rode R&N's RDCs to Jim Thorpe on this date to also photograph and ride behind #425. I was also eager to see the Lehigh Gorge, and the remnants of the LV and CNJ.
I was not disappointed in any way, it was a fun day and #425 is a impressive machine, although a bit slippery at times.
I recently returned for another day with #425, and await the return of T-1 2102.
All photos taken at Jim Thorpe; 6/24/2018

Hats off to the people who rebuilt her, keep her timed well, clean and well, just name it.  I have listened to many videos of that square engine and her exhaust is a thing of great pleasure.
