ROCKHILL FURNACE, Pa. — Responding to heavy demand, the East Broad Top added several trips during Saturday’s Winter Spectacular, a revival of the event held 1966-81. Scheduled trips with Brill gas-electric M-1 and a caboose all sold out within hours of tickets going on sale, so the EBT added trips, and sold all those out, as well. The railroad also brought out railbus/motorcar M-3, built from a 1928 Nash, and offered rides on that, as well. The one-day event also saw operations at the neighboring Rockhill Trolley Museum. The EBT continues to work toward the resumption of regular operations this spring. — With information from Dan Cupper
