The Reading T-1

In early 2005, MTH brought out a Premier line model of the Reading T-1 Northern (4-8-4) steam locomotive.  These locomotives are very recognizable as they were the stars of the "Reading Rambles" that were run with them well after the railroad switched over to diesel power.  The model is an excellent representation of the prototype — it looks great, it sounds great, and it runs very well as you can see in this True HD 1080p video.  I have it pulling my "pipeline on rails," a string of 40 tank cars.  Unlike the previous Challenger video, here I've used only the longer tank cars and have gone through my collection to use all of the ones that carry railroad names.  See how many you can find! 🙂
