East Broad Top on History Channel 5/23/2005

Post by n01jd1 »

Last night the History channel had a program about secret plots that occured during the civil war. One of the topics covered was the union theft of the "General" and the great railroad chase that followed. They used EBT #14 and filmed aroud the yard in Orbisonia where there are still harp switchstands controlling stub switches and on the main line across a farmers field . In some close ups, you can see the painted out EBT markings!!

Wasn't too interesting of a program but railfans may like it...no liberties taken, just the true story of the incident.
