I just purchased my second EBT kit, East Broad Top HO/HOn3 Boiler House Laser Cut Craftsman Structure Kit. I already have the East Broad Top Machine Shop Laser Cut Craftsman Structure Kit HO/HOn3. These will be used on my second narrow gauge line. This will be the coal mining part of the layout.

I've seen pictures of these EBT kits (on Facebook), they look good. I'll be interested to hear how they work as kits.

I am unfamiliar with the EBT like of kits. Do you have any photos of your East Broad Top Machine Shop, and was it a pleasant build? The Machine Shop looks huge; what is the approx. footprint

Whoa, it's a whopper. But one of the pictures is lame, Blue Tape holding the walls together!

I became a member on the Facebook groups associated with the EBT and this guy, Nate's Light Iron Hobbies...Broad Top Mountain Models: A Division of Nate's Light Iron Hobbies, advertised that he was going to bring out a kit of the EBT shops. Since I discovered the EBT way back in the 1970's it's been my favorite narrow gauge. This year the EBT got sold to a group and they plan on restoring the whole line from Orbisonia to Mount Union. From what I gather the rails were never pulled, just paved over. The railroad property was never sold to entities along the railroad bed.

As far as the model is concerned, since I'm working on building a layout I haven't built the kit yet. I'll post a thread here when I finally do build it. I'm getting the kits now so later down the line I won't regret not getting them when they become collector items like FSM kits or SRMW kits.

Here's two links that will answer all your questions.
