Remarks & Notes 
R&N Orthodoxy
The onion domed towers of St. John the Baptist Russian Orthodox Church dominate the borough of Nesquehoning, as Reading and Northern’s Fall Foliage F-unit excursion (Reading Outer Station to Jim Thorpe and return) bisects the KME Fire Apparatus complex at 16:08 on October 31, 2020.

(1) RBMN F9(A) 270 (ex-NS 270, exx-NS 4270)
(2) RBMN F7(B) 275 (ex-NS 275, exx-NS 4275)
(3) RBMN SD50-2 5018 (ex-CSXT 8507)

Although the symbol of (at least) the northbound trip has been reported, in other venues, as “OSJT”, I can’t confirm that as an official designation. I only heard DS refer to this, the southbound leg, as “Extra 270”.

Although most only provide freight service, regional railroads have passenger operations; not only executive trains but also charity events and excursions.
