Remarks & Notes 
Its the 1986 Blue Mountain & Reading Railfan Weekend, and two trains are running all day long, with different power on almost every trip. In preparation for meeting a southbound train pulled by Reading 4-8-4 2102, a pair of restored Pennsylvania Railroad E8s brings its train into the little-used passing siding in Leesport, Pennsylvania. Although this is the former PRR Schuylkill branch, it is highly unlikely that these EMDs ever plied these rails during their original life. Passenger service on the Schuylkill branch west of Reading ended in 1941, well over a decade before the Es were built.
