Steam Saturday: Narrow Gauge Lines Closer to Home

Maybe you often get the itch to venture to Colorado to explore narrow gauge, but making such trip isn’t feasible.

Closer to home, though, are two narrow-guage operations, the Huckleberry Railroad near Flint, Michigan, and the East Broad Top at Orbisonia, Pennsylvania.

The latter is still not back in operation but should be within the next year or two.

In the meantime, here are a images made at both railroads in 1994 and 1995.

The top and next three images were made in September 1994 on the Huckleberry Railroad and feature ex-Alaska Railroad No. 2, formerly the 152.

Following that are image of EBT Nos. 12, 15 and 17 made in October 1994 and October 1995.
