EBT Steamer Has Shake Down Run

East Broad Railroad operated 2-8-2 No. 16 on Thursday in preparation for an upcoming event.

Trains magazine reported on its website that the Mikado steam locomotive built in 1916 by Baldwin operated for the first time since 1956.

At the throttle was Master Mechanic Dave Domitrovich while Nevin Byers was the fireman.

No. 16 will pull most of the excursions that will operate during the Winter Spectacular on Feb. 18-19.

Tickets for the Feb. 18 trips behind No. 16 are reported to be sold out while tickets for the Feb. 19 trips are selling quickly. Some trips will be powered by a Brill gas-electric car.
