Rainout at the EBT

This year was a special year for the East Broad Top RR’s Fall Spectacular, held every Columbus Day. Engine #15 has been restored to service, top to bottom. Since I started going to the EBT, back in 2001, only engine #14 was in service. I longed for seeing and hearing the other steamers but knew that it may never happen due to the high expense in rebuilding a steam loco. When I heard that they were going to restore #15 a few years ago, I have been closely following the progress, occasionally checking in on it in the Roundhouse whenever I visited the RR. So when I heard that she’d make her debut this year at the Fall Spectacular, I was overjoyed.

Unfortunately, this year was nothing but rain and since Kristin and Kyle were both planning on going, we had to opt out. We also needed to have a roofer come visit because of a leak in the roof. All in all it turned out to be a good weekend since Kristin and I did some work on the home Network (pics here), worked the B&ORRHS table at the Great Scale Model Train Show in Timonium, and spent some time with Kyle.
