Wheel detail on Reading Railroad steam locomotive # 2124 which emerged from the Reading shops in January of 1947. The 2124 was actually a rebuild of an earlier locomotive, # 2044, built in 1924. Due to war time steel shortages no new locomotives were being built so Reading repurposed an older locomotive in the building of # 2124. This is the first locomotive you encounter when entering the Steamtown National Historic Site in Scranton Pennsylvania.
