Subject:  Narrow gauge railway and environs


A National Historic Landmark—the highest designation available in the United States—the East Broad Top Railroad and Coal Company is the country's oldest narrow gauge railroad.  The railroad suspended operations in 1956 and was purchased by the Kovalchick family, which kept it operational as a tourist line until 2012.  Liability issues have kept the EBTRR from operating the engines, excursions and the rail line. The Kovalchick family is now considering auctioning or scrapping the site.  The East Broad Top Preservation Association is currently working to acquire and preserve the railroad.  The site is currently considered private property and it is against the law to loiter and photograph there without permission.  A tour is the only legal way to photograph the landmark.

New this year is the Howard Mason Trestle. An elevated promenade towering 46 feet above the ground, similar to the Highline in New York City, that is now open.  This walkway is about  3/10ths of a mile long running parallel to the blast furnaces and steel stacks.  After dark the area is light by colored floodlights.
