For up to the minute weather forecasts visit accuweather.com and checking the Rockhill zip code, 17249. There is a possibility of some snow this weekend.


Local Restaurants are available in Orbisonia.

Boilerhouse Rats

Will continue painting the second coat on the Freight house weather permitting. Window repairs will also continue. Randy Lehrian will lead this project.

Combine 14

The combine crew will continue stripping internal and external paint, and continue installing internal plywood stiffeners. Installing clerestory windows will continue if enough help is present. It will be warm enough that we can prime and finish paint parts for the car. Charlie Wootton will lead this project.

Steel Crew

Work will continue on brake testing, frame repairs, side sheet repairs on the boxcar.

Ground Rules

To take part you must be 18 and a member of the FEBT (or join the FEBT at the work site.) These are insurance requirements. We are guests of the railroad and need to behave accordingly.

Last-minute walk-ons are always welcome at our sessions, but if possible, drop me an e-mail in advance to let me know that you are coming. It helps with the planning.

See you there!
