East Broad Top Saturday
« on: August 16, 2010, 10:49:31 AM »
While you all were enjoying the annual picnic at Sheepscot, I was at the East Broad Top, a somewhat wider narrow gauge. Aug. 14 marked the 50th anniversary of the reopening of the railroad for tourist service, and an old friend from Michigan whom I met up with on Saturday had attended that ceremony. Here's a photo:

No. 15 accelerating across Meadow Street and past the open trolley. The train is heading around the wye, and after the train clears, the trolley will proceed down the former Shade Gap Branch of the EBT, which includes dual gauge track to accommodate both trains and trolleys.
