Girder bridge

The East Broad Top Railroad:
The Mainline


No. 15 waiting
No. 15 waiting at Orbisonia to begin an excursion trip to Colgate Grove.

No. 14 on bridge
No. 14 leading a string of coaches over the Blacklog Creek Bridge.

Train at distance
The business car "Orbisonia" brings up the rear of an afternoon excursion run.

From the caboose
Backing a train up the steep grade at the Colgate Grove wye, as seen from the cupola of an EBT caboose.
You can really hear the Mikes working on this short stretch of track.

Inside view of combine
A passenger consist gliding to a halt on the other leg of the wye,
as seen from the open door of one of the EBT combines.

No. 14 waiting
The wye offers a good perspective for portraits, such as this of No. 14 on an October afternoon.

From the farm bridge
The sole overpass on the active portion of the mainline has been the site of countless photographs
(most better than this one).

Train in sunlight
No. 14 leading a train south on the main in late afternoon light.

No. 17
No. 17, the largest of the operable Mikes, pulls a Fall Spectacular
freight run onto the Blacklog Creek bridge in 1998.

Coal hoppers
A string of restored narrow-gauge hopper cars rolls over the girder bridge during the Fall Spectacular.

Augwick Mills
Beyond the portion of the line used for excursion runs, the mainline is intact, but just barely.
The bridge at Augwick Mills, for instance, has seen better days -- and hasn't seen a train since 1956.
