Nonprofit Buys East Broad Top Railroad, Plans to Renovate and Reopen
Pennsylvania’s storied East Broad Top Railroad has a new owner, a nonprofit foundation organized by a small group of prominent rail-industry figures and longtime EBT fans. The new organization will offer several EBT events in 2020 — the 60th anniversary of the start of tourist service on the railroad — and hopes to resume regular operation in 2021. The organization, called the EBT Foundation Inc., will own approximately 27 miles of the line.
I forgot about the big announcement at 11am. Saw the link from the Reading Society of Model Engineers Facebook page. Big announcement at 11 am on Friday. Some people thought it was to fix up steam engine 12. This is far better news.
Dave you have another place to visit next year.😁😀🙂

The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: I hear TK is boogieing up to Allentown already. I’ll be heading out soon. Flamingo tote IS riding shotgun! For practice I went to an antiques mall yesterday to hone my visual acuity to spot deals from 15 yards or more. Hello Allentown!
