Review of East Broad Top Reborn DVD

Pennsylvania's East Broad Top Railroad was a totally self-sufficient narrow gauge line in the mountains of Pennsylvania. The entire property was sold in the 1950s, was brought back to life as a tourist hauler in 1961, but in 2011 it closed and the property was silent for years. Then in 2020, the railroad was purchased by the non-profit East Broad Top Foundation with the goal of re-opening the entire railroad once again.

Follow Trains magazine's crew and see the rebirth from the opening weekend in 2020 through the return of steam locomotive No. 16 for the Winter Spectacular in 2023!

In this new DVD, you'll get to see:

Special events like the Winter Spectaculars
A tour of the Rockhill Trolley Museum
The volunteers rebuilding the track and buildings
A shop tour
The Robertsdale Museum
Plus, an exclusive look at the out of service portion of the railroad
Come with us for a video to see the East Broad Top that you know and the parts that you don't!
