The East Broad Top experience is rooted in the railroad’s one-hour roundtrip scenic train excursions, which travel over a portion of the EBT’s historic mainline through Central Pennsylvania’s rolling hills, pastoral farmland, and thick forests. Most of the scheduled departures are pulled by one of the railroad’s iconic steam locomotives, which has been painstakingly restored and maintained to operate over the same rails it was built to serve over 108 years ago. In addition to the scenic rides, the EBT offers visitors guided tours of the railroad’s remarkably intact belt-driven machine shop complex, and a variety of special events throughout the year including a living history weekend featuring displays from three eras of war history, a Ragtime and American Music festival offering performances from Grammy Award-Winning musicians, and family-oriented train rides for Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.
