Rambling on the Reading. Here are twenty-two of the best "Rambles" - many of them doubleheaded, all with the famed 4-8-4 T-1 Northerns as power. Hear both freight and passenger whistles recalling the working days of steam. This is a roaring salute to steam as a storm of doubleheaders thunder across meadow and mountain from the first green of spring to the last blaze of autumn. 53 minutes 

2101 Stompin’ on Sand Patch. As a freight engine in regular service on the Reading Railroad, as belle of the American Freedom Train in the northeast in 1976 and finally in Chessie System yellow as she assaults the 1.7% grade at Sand Patch and the 2.18% 17 mile grade to Terra Alta. A rip-snorter of a steam railroad film! 36 minutes
