FEBT Restoration – Track 1
In preparation for a 2011 Day Out with Thomas event, the EBT requested that the FEBT restoration crew assist with bringing Track 1 back into service. This is the track immediately adjacent to the Orbisonia Station platform; Track 2 is the main. Having Track 1 in service would allow both the Thomas train and the regular train to access the station without sharing the same track.
In cooperation with the EBT and trolley museum crews, FEBT volunteers ballasted and tamped dozens of ties (installed previously) and leveled the track. As a result the track was serviceable for the event.
