Good evening fellow RYPN'ers,

Happy New Year!

The Christmas season was a great time to share our project with all the Open House visitors we had and we still managed to continue to make progress on a few key tasks despite the Open House activity.

We are resuming work this month again on the 2100 and hope you will come visit us at the roundhouse, perhaps join ASR, buy a few raffle tickets for our next raffle drawing or become a $21.00 a month supporter. There are so many ways you can help ASR and the 2100 restoration effort. Thanks again for all of you who have supported us and we look forward to our continued partnership with all of you in 2020!

Here is the link to our December 2019 Video Update:

Sincerely,

Rob Gardner
ASR VP and 2100 Project Manager

I visited their operation a few weeks back and can report that the work they're doing to bring the 2100 back to life ( as God and the Reading intended as a coal burner !! ) is first rate and I'm confident that when they're done she will be a good performer.

IMHO they deserve the support of all who can afford to pitch in.


Happy New Year, Ross Rowland

Richard, unfortunately I won't be there. However, look for Forerst Nace and Steve Harvey. They will be there. Our booth should be in the same spot it was last year.

Ross, as always, your kind words of encouragement are like gold. We are looking to make some significant forward progress in the next few months.

I'm very happy to see the headway they've made. I was lucky enough to see/ride 2100 out of Tacoma a few times, but I'd love to know she's back in Reading markings and burning coal!

Makes sense, Ross, as you fully know she has the tender you personally used on the Freedom Train, when the current tender on 2100 was instead used on your "AFT # 1," aka RDG 2101 when you ran her in the East...
