FEBT Fall Reunion

The Fall Reunion is a three-day event held every year by the Friends. It includes activities based around the East Broad Top Railroad, and our FEBT Museum in Robertsdale 30 miles southwest of Rockhill Furnace. The weekend typically includes the annual FEBT business meeting on Friday evening. Other activities include tours, seminars, model and photo contests, a fundraising auction where EBT memorabilia and other valuable items are sold to the highest bidder, a reunion dinner and the FEBT museum open house. The FEBT usually provides yard, shop and roundhouse tours
