Review of East Broad Top - The Little Engines That Could DVD

This fascinating video is about the oldest narrow gauge railroad in the United States, the East Broad Top Railroad.

The E B T operates a small fleet of Baldwin-built Mikados hauling passengers through the fertile Aughwick Valley, between Rockhill Furnace and Colgate Grove, Pennsylvania. You'll learn a little history of the line, and see the "truck swap" from standard to narrow gauge trucks at Mount Union.

You'll see the tourist operation from start to finish, with plenty of line-side runbys and action-packed pacing. And for you trolley fans, we'll take you to the Shade Gap Railway, where you'll see standard gauge trolleys and interurbans sharing dual gauge track with the East Broad Top trains.

This fascinating video is one you are sure to enjoy.

Digitally re-mastered, this video brings you 52 minutes of unique and historic steam action with The Little Engines That Could!
