Equipment Roster

Unlike many railroad museums, the East Broad Top is home to a variety of historic wooden passenger cars, steel freight cars, gas motors, and steam locomotives that were either built for the railroad or spent most of their working life here. Remarkably, we can still see and ride most of this equipment today. Explore our unique roster below.

The East Broad Top Railroad was notable for only using steam locomotives during its common carrier era. Six of these magnificent machines survive to tell the story of bygone railroading.

While not original to the railroad, these diesel locomotives have become part of the railroad’s legacy. They often help with moving equipment and occasionally pull our passenger trains.

The railroad owns two one-of-a-kind gas motorcars that ferried people along the line.

With some pieces dating back to the 1880s, the passenger car fleet includes our coaches, cabooses, and open air cars.

A wide range of the freight cars that allowed the railroad to haul commodities including coal, ganister rock, lumber, and general merchandise survive as a testament to the railroad’s industrial history.

Track crews required dependable transportation to reach remote parts of the railroad to keep in maintained. These ‘speeders’ range in sizes, styles, and propulsion methods and showcase the evolution of track maintenance technology.
