The Friends of the East Broad Top helped the railroad celebrate its 41st year of tourist service by hosting tours through the EBT’s signature shop buildings.
The “Open Shop” days at the railroad allowed FEBT members free access to the interiors of many of the shop complex’s buildings. FEBT volunteers were stationed throughout to offer interpretative dialogue to anyone who was interested in learning how the shops worked. The general public was able to tour the buildings as well by purchasing a $5 ticket from the railroad.
As an added bonus, the rail road offered discount train tickets for FEBT members.
