TTCE: Reading Company Iron Horse Ramble

READING COMPANY IRON HORSE RAMBLE
In the fall of 1959, the Reading Railroad decided to run a limited number of steam-powered public excursion trains, dubbed "Iron Horse Rambles." The train is modeled after the first Ramble on October 25, 1959, nearly fifty years ago. Reading's T1 No. 2124 is pulling Reading Company's 408 combine, 1424, and 1474. The rear of the train is nostalgically marked by the two lanterns and the iconic drum head which reads "IRON HORSE RAMBLES, READING RAILROAD"

This one is a wonderful MOC, one of my top favourites in this contest! As Tony has already mentioned, the proportions of the train are spot-on, but it's other details that really make it stand out -- and, of course, the wonderful yellow motives and livery round it all off in a perfect manner...
I do hope to see more of your brilliant train MOCs, jmsenigma! Thanks for this brilliant entry!
