Following WWII, the Reading Company needed a faster and more powerful locomotive, but didn’t have the funds to purchase new ones. So they converted (30) 2-8-0 I10sa consolidations into (30) 4-8-4 T1 Northerns. A feedwater heater, booster, and 70” drivers allowed for power and speed as intended. They were often considered “awkward” looking because of their off-center headlight, streamlined running boards and wootten fireboxes.

Today: Only (4) of the (30) T1’s survive today:

#2100 powered the Iron Horse Rambles from 1959-64, ran excursions in 1988 and 2007, and now resides in Cleveland, OH being restored for the United States Semiquincentennial in 2026.
#2101 powered the American Freedom Train from 1975-76, the Chessie Steam Special from 1977-78, was damaged in a roundhouse fire in 1978 and is now on display at the B&O Museum in Baltimore, MD
#2102 powered the Iron Horse Rambles from 1961-64, various excursions from 1966-85, ran on the BM&R from 1985-1991 and is currently operated for the R&N Rambles trips during the Summer and Fall months.
#2123 was saved to be used as a parts engine for the locomotives used on the Iron Horse Rambles excursions and was eventually scrapped in 1966
#2124 powered the Iron Horse Rambles from 1959-1961, was sold to F. Nelson Blount and was moved in 1986 to Steamtown in Scranton, PA
