The story of a railroad extends beyond its locomotives and cars. It includes the buildings, facilities, machines, tools, and people that maintained it and kept it operational. Because the East Broad Top Railroad is narrow-gauge, it required its own facilities in Rockhill Furnace to maintain its equipment. Thanks to the efforts of the Kovalchick family, this shop complex and the machines it housed have remained since the railroad ended its freight service in 1956. Its through these shops that we can learn a vast amount regarding this industrial history, and we want to share that knowledge with you.
