Remarks & Notes 
East Broad Top after Dark: South Yard. After coaling and watering their locomotive, an EBT Engine Crew waits for switches to be lined for their last move of the day; the move to the roundhouse. Their locomotive, a 1914 Baldwin Mikado carrying the road number 15, sits at the very south end of the EBT's Orbisonia Yard. To the left, is the coaling dock, which is fed from a hopper on the hill behind the concrete wall. Adjacent to the locomotive, is one of two water columns in the yard. Behind them, there is nothing but the main line, which continues south and west into the hilly mining country for another 22 miles or so, passing such garden spots as Three Springs, Saltillo, Coles, Robertsdale and Alvan. Although the track is still in place as of 2018, there are large trees growing up through much of it. Realistically, the usable track ends a hundred yards or so behind the engine.

Lights In The Night (Or Sundown/Sunrise)! Railroads Seen In Another Perspective!

Album created by member Dana M.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)

A look at the one-time coal-hauler, which ran as a tourist railroad for decades and finally ceased operations in 2011. The album includes photos from an October 2010 charter as well as images from the very last Fall Spectacular in October of 2011.
