East Broad Top #6 is still there, but it's not owned by us anymore. There's also a 2-truck Shay on the property that is owned by another member in Louisiana.

The two-truck loco is actually a Heisler, sister to one that ran on the RR in the 1970s. There is also a Plymouth  industrial switcher.  Photos attached.

Question on the East Broad Top #6. Is this narrow gauge? Or was this one of EBT's standard gauge locos that worked the Mount Union dual gauge yards? Forgot about this one. Off topic but EBT is selling 100 hoppers that have sat since 1956 to try and raise funds to MAYBE run this year. I've heard the EBT is in trouble.

With EBT themselves, I haven't heard very much. I heard the ceased operations. One of the guys from the museum would be able to tell you right away.

However, EBT #6 was one of two (I think. I know of just #3 & #6) standard gauge locomotives that they used to switch both the standard gauge stuff and narrow gauge stuff. Both #3 & #6 were set up with dual gauge couplers. To my knowledge and in my recent visual inspection of #6, I haven't really noticed any bits from the old narrow gauge coupler, but the standard gauge coupler obviously remains. And as I'm told, they were on both ends of the locomotives.

#6's is one of the standard gauge engines from Mt. Union and her narrow gauge couplers are stored away, on Whitewater Valley RR property.

And with the E.B.T, if you have 10 million just laying around you can purchase the railroad. And I haven't heard anything about them selling the hopper cars.
