The East Broad Top Railroad - Don Janes


An overall look at one end of the shop complex.  

The East Broad Top Railroad

A Step Back In Railroad History……by Don Janes 

Part Two

The old stone office was originally a farm house before the railroad was built in Rock Hill Furnace (Orbisonia) 

An interior shot of one of the old shop buildings. Things lay pretty much where they were when the railroad closed down in the 1950’s.

The old 8 stall roundhouse is in great shape and houses three other EBT steam engines beside #16 and an old gas electric passenger unit.  Hopefully some of these engines will be restored to operating condition some day.

The train has backed down to the yard for water before its last run of the day.

The conductor is walking the train as the tender is filled from a hose that runs over to the roundhouse

#16 waits at the station to depart on her last trip of the day.
