MARCH/2000: Berks Jazz Fest Uses Reading #900 for Album Cover and Poster

In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the GPU Berks Jazz Fest in March, 2000, the Berks Arts Council, sponsors of the event, decided to pay tribute to the railroad heritage of Reading and Berks County for their souvenir poster and CD, available at festival events and at Borders books in Wyomissing, PA. The items feature a beautiful photograph of RCT&HS’ own Reading FP7 #900, renumbered to #2000 for the event.

The CD features artists that have performed at the festival over the years, including cuts from Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Boney James, and Rick Braun, among others.
