On 18 April 2020 Reading Blue Mountain & Northern Railroad runs its first excursion train (with two photo stops) with its two F9s acquired from Norfolk Southern. The 230-mile round-trip excursion from Reading Outer Station in Muhlenberg Township to Pittston and return will be the first public appearance for F9 270 and F7B 275, which will carry a new Reading & Northern paint scheme. The ride will also be the first public trip to cross the railroad’s new bridge at Jim Thorpe Junction, a project that connects the railroad's Reading and Lehigh divisions.
