Experience one of the most unique and rare railroad motorcars in existence!

Built in 1927, the M-1 is the only original narrow-gauge gasoline electric motorcar still in existence in the United States. Constructed in the EBT’s very own shop complex, this one-of-a-kind piece of railroad history has been painstakingly restored and still runs using many of its original parts and components over the same railroad it was built to serve over 96 years ago.

Passengers on the M-1 have the unique ability to explore the entire Motorcar, from the tiny passenger compartment to the spacious baggage and mail area. Staying safely behind the threshold, you’ll even be able to watch as the skilled motorman carefully operates the M-1 and hear the roar of the Brill 6 Cylinder Aluminum-Block engine in action.

Trips on the M-1 traverse the same route as our regular excursions and often include scheduled meets with these trains, offering M-1 passengers unique photo opportunities as they pass. All trains depart from the historic Orbisonia Station and make the scenic nine-mile roundtrip to Colgate Grove and back.

Note: At this time, M-1 Excursions do not offer passengers the ability to disembark at Colgate Grove for a picnic layover. 

Accommodation

All tickets on the M-1 are sold as “standing room only” as there are a limited number of seats available throughout the car. Passengers are encouraged to rotate through the compartments during the ride.
