Reading M1sa Antracite Mike #1724
Title:  Reading M1sa Antracite Mike #1724
Description:  Reading M1sa #1724, a 1912 era Mikado, takes on water at the Skillman water spout. The Reading rostered 57 of these units, built by both Baldwin and the Reading itself. CKF referred to them as "typical Reading freight locomotives" in his notes of the time. Sadly, none of these survive. We are on the New York Branch of the Philadelphia Division, a bike ride away from CKF's home at the time in Blawenburg NJ.
