The Last Coal Road

EBT boxcar #170 stands trim and tall on her narrow-gauge trucks outside the carshop.  A 1913 product of EBT's own shops, 170 beautifully represents the archetypal railroad freight car of the Golden Age of North American railroading.  Along with a handful of other EBT freight cars, 170 has been restored for use on special photo charter freights and enthusiast specials.  Note the line of hoppers on the yard track in the background, overgrown by the shrubbery pushing up through their floors.
