East Broad Top 2015 roundhouse and backshops
« on: May 20, 2015, 04:11:37 PM »

On two separate occasions last month, by special invitation and permission from railroad management, I was allowed access to the East Broad Top’s roundhouse and backshops.

The granddaddy of steam-era portals to the past, I found the interiors particularly difficult to photograph; to capture both the magnitude of preserved industrial revolution before my eyes, and what I was feeling while roaming the hallowed grounds. It boggles the mind that these scenes from 100+ years ago still exist.

All the stable mates are there; old friends - still together - getting older: 16, 18, 12, 17, 15, 14 & M-1.

Time stands still.

Very nice photo essay Matthew.  Always good to see the EBT where I got my first steam cab ride many moons ago.  Thanks for the link.
