RBMN 270 at Dusk
Author: cr2581

Reading & Northern displayed their newest acquisition at the outer station in North Reading this weekend. Former NS F unit 270 never looked better. Many thanks to John M. Gabriel for providing the excellent lighting.

Enjoy !!!

Like!   Almost like a builder's photo.

I'll be the devil's advocate here. While I applaud the RBMN for saving the F units, I think the paint scheme could have been better. Too much striping, for instance.  They could have left off the lower white pinstripe and the black stripe within the white band and the look would have been far more traditional.

Fantastic image,  ugly scheme. 

Lionel and Marlboro would be proud.

It's all in the eyes of the beholder  . . i think the paint scheme is striking . . . and another operating F unit to boot.

I am just pleased that the units were saved and they will be used from time to time!  I could picture them being used on some of the Christmas trains and for other special occasions.

Is anyone else here on TO riding the April 18 trip from Reading to Pittston over the new Jim Thorpe bridge that is scheduled to be pulled by the F’s?

Agreed. Between that paint job, and the dumb "Aristocrat of Coal" logo he is putting on cars, I think Andy is losing his mind.

This is a great photo of an uninspired paint scheme.  It sure isn't as nice as what it replaced, the classic Southern style.  I am glad that they will be well cared for, but I wish they were wearing something more appealing.  Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I kind of wish that the black would have been replaced by a dark blue or something resembling their steam engine.  Either way, it sure wouldn't stop me from ridng behind it or shooting it!

Love the F's but I do not like the paint scheme. I would have preferred the Reading F units paint scheme but I guess Andy wanted his own idenity. I thank Andy for getting
both units A&B and cannot wait to see them heading up grade through Tamaqua. It will bring back many memories of my childhood watching trains in that great railroad town.
