EBT #15

These photographs and others you will see this week were shot at the fall spectacular on October 6, 2007 at the East Broad Top Railroad in Orbisonia, Pa. Trains and trolleys run all day at the spectacular, while the boy scouts and other local groups sell food. The event is attended by hundreds but the visitor that most stands out is the adult male running around with their cameras smiling like they are little kids again. For anyone that likes trains this is a place you must visit.

The above photos are of number 15 a Baldwin 2-8-2 built in 1914. Number 15 was purchased in 1914 because of the increase in passenger traffic. After a four year overhaul number 15 returned to service in 2005. She made many trips this past weekend bringing joy to hundreds.

Later this week there will be more photographs and history from the EBT.
