East Broad Top
Author: chuchubob

The East Broad Top RR in Orbisonia, PA, operated two steam engines this year after a couple/three years of only one. #14 is going into the shop for mandatory inspection and repairs after protecting the schedules as best she could for the last few years.
Baldwin 2-8-2, 1912

The highlight of the day was the photo freight, with 15 and 14 doubleheaded.

The hand held telephoto shot in the rain while holding an umbrella and the camera bag came out better than I expected.

Gasoline-electric M-1 (Brill, built by EBT at Orbisonia in 1927) made one revenue trip after posing adjacent to #17, which was on static display.

How do they turn the entire train around at the north end?

There is a wye at the picnic grove. I memory serves me correctly, they typically turn the entire train at the wye.

That is correct. This is a photo of a train backing into the wye from the main.
