Following the opening ceremonies at the Orbisonia, PA station during East Broad Top Railroad’s 60th anniversary celebration on August 13, 2020,
a special train carrying the Kovalchick family, the mayor of Orbisonia and other VIPs departed for a trip over the one mile section of track which
has been rehabilitated, which was to the Enyeart Road crossing. This train was comprised of EBT’s unique three-foot gauge gas-electric motor car M-1 and EBT’s
business car No. 20, named “Orbisonia”. This photo was taken as the train was departing the Orbisonia station.
