Requests for Proposals
The EBT Foundation acquired the railroad and moved quickly to stabilize historic buildings and repair track and cars that were used in a four-mile tourist operation from 1960 to 2011. The foundation is eager to bring in experienced preservation architects and planners to help us strategize for the years ahead. We need to consider how best to use the facilities we have, how to interpret our history most effectively for visitors, what new facilities we may need, and how the railroad and the Rockhill Trolley Museum can most successfully work together to not only interpret but market Rockhill Furnace and Orbisonia as a destination for tourism. We also need to look at communities the railroad could be fortunate enough to return to, such as Shirleysburg, Three Springs, and Saltillo, and consider how we could help them benefit by the EBT’s return.
