Remarks & Notes 
Rustic East Broad Top. EBT Locomotive 15 pauses at the sand house in the Orbisonia Yard, while her crew fills the domes in preparation for a freight drag up to Mt. Union.

Much of the infrastructure in the EBT Yard is of wooden construction, and nearly all of it has been in service for more than a century. To say that it is showing its age is an understatement. Many of the structures are leaning in multiple directions and in recent times, some of them appeared to be in imminent danger of collapse. Fortunately, through the efforts of the highly dedicated Friends of the East Broad Top (FEBT), numerous key structures have not only been stabilized, but also restored to a significant degree. Never the less, the place retains the well-used atmosphere of a working railroad. Although the operation has been shut down since late 2011, the FEBT continues its tireless efforts, hosting numerous work weekends each year, in hopes that new ownership will breath new life into this National Historic Landmark.
