Reading & Northern 425
Reading, Blue Mountain and Northern Railroad 425 (R&N 425) is a 1928 Baldwin built 4-6-2 light “Pacific” originally built for the Gulf, Mobile & Northern. The engine later became Gulf, Mobile & Ohio 580 and would eventually be retired in 1950. Over the next three decades, several different people would own the engine; in 1983, it was bought by the Blue Mountain & Reading and has routinely pulled excursions throughout eastern Pennsylvania ever since. The Reading, Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad, (also known as Reading & Northern) is a regional railroad in Pennsylvania and operates on 300 miles of track.
Over the last 20 years, R&N 425 has had several different paint schemes, ranging from all black to dark blue to most recently, a lighter blue. Coming this fall, R&N 425 will debut a brand new paint scheme, which will feature a dark midnight blue and black mix. The boiler and cab will be dark blue and everything under the running boards will be black. Think of it like the classic green “Southern” paint scheme, but with a very dark blue where the green paint would be.
