Bump, because the group that operated the EBT (East Broad Top Preservation Association?) itself is sort of being booted off the property by the East Broad Top Railroad and Coal Company.
News of the Mount Union Connecting Railroad (MTC) sort of peters out in 2008 (the EBT site Mount Union page
ends with a 2006 update - also some mention that the trackwork was progressing well - till 2006, that the Engine House was repaired and painted, and that the Plymouth switcher the Mount Union had purchased had a lot of problems). After that, dribs and drabs can be found on other websites (including this one), but not much.
You can see on Google Maps
the loading dock in Mount Union that the MTR built, and the restored connection to the Norfollk Southern line pretty clearly - also, former siding ROW into a half-demolished complex directly south on what I guess was a restored Station on Layfette Ave, near the dock. Following State Route 2025 East you past the restored Enginehouse (north of a bank on 2025), and then a yard half buried in the woods with what I guess are the abandoned EBT narrow-gauge hoppers as seen on the bottom of this page
You can follow the ROW east on google maps fairly easily to the cool dual Gauge Rt 522 crossing, and the south alongside 522 until a facility that Google Maps labels as Containment Solutions. Then the ROW seems hard to follow and disconnected.
So, what was the ultimate goal of the MTC? Was containment solutions or some other facility in that little area supposed to be clients? I Keep reading about "Sylco Services" - are they even still around (their website indicates they are served by Juniata Valley)? I can't really figure out the Mount Union's ultimate goal, if they ever had one - any ideas?
