EBT Announcement?
Author: Q4960

According to the East Broad Top Facebook page a special announcement concerning the future operation of the railroad is to be made on Friday February 14, 2020 at 11 a.m. Eastern time.  In my search elsewhere I could find no other such post or information.  Just wondering if anyone else has seen anything else on this?

Guess you'll just have to wait like the rest of us, Roger.

Roger,  that is a great photo taken inside the roundhouse.  I have been out there many times, starting in the early 1960's.  I sure hope that it can be preserved somehow!

Do any of those locomotives have boiler time left on them?

I am led to believe that the announcement will be of GREAT interest to all fans of the EBT.

Word on the significance of the event is leaking out. A Facebook friend was gathering a small group of fans to head up to Orbisonia this morning  (where the announcement is to be made at the depot, from what I understand).

I understand that 15's boiler time is good until some time this August.

Well, if the secret announcement is to be made at the depot......how did THOSE people hear about it to come?

Because there was a non-secret announcement was that there was going to be an announcement. An embargoed press release was shared with proper parties and a public invitation was made.
