Hi
I found a photo of Reading 2100 during the Reading Rambles trips and I was wondering where was it taken? The photo does read Wayne, was the photo taken in Pennsylvania.
Hopefully, someone can verify the location, as always Thank you.

Wayne Junction? Trying to find a match for the tower in the background. It says Craig on it?

Photo is at Wayne Junction, 5.1 miles from Reading Terminal, Philadelphia. T-1's were not permitted to go any closer to Reading Terminal (specifically the bridge over the Richmond Branch at the East end of "WS" interlocking, behind the 2100)

The 'tower" reading "Craig" is one of the coal silos belonging to Craig Coal, a local retail coal dealer.

2100 is at the East (nearer Reading Terminal) end of the station and is facing Westward (outbound) on the Bethlehem Branch toward Jenkintown. Valve gear shows he is backing, probably to take over a train that was diesel-hauled from Reading Terminal.

The Reading shop guys did like their silver paint.
