East Broad Top Railroad, Orbisonia (Rockhill Furnace), PA, October 17, 2009
Photos by John D. Jones
John D. Jones visited the East Broad Top Railroad in Rockhill, Pa on October 17, 2009 and was surprised to find that ten inches of snow fell that morning.
The snowy setting with Mikado 2-8-2 #15 made for the beautiful sequence of photos below. #15 was built by Baldwin for the EBT in 1914. The EBT station is located in
Rockhill Furnace, PA but the station name was changed many years ago to Orbisonia to avoid confusion with other stations bearing Rockhill in the name.
Hence the photos show Orbisonia on the depot building. It was a rare experience to see the EBT in snow during its regular excursion season and John
reports that none of the prople he talked to remembered it ever
happening before. Enjoy the John's beautiful photos below.
