East Broad Top 2012

Is there a chance that EBT will not be operating this year? No schedule for this year while almost everyone else is running or has at least posted a schedule.

From Facebook:

Well here it is. The railroad will NOT run this summer. Things could not be worked out between Mr. Kovalchick and EBTPA.

We will still be offering tours of the shops and round house for groups of 20 or more people but they must call the station and make arrangments for that at 814-447-3011.

This does not mean that the railroad will not open back up next year, we will be looking at all the possibilities to try and reopen in 2013.

We will keep you posted as to what is going on with the railroad as the year goes by.
