In the Blacksmiths Shop,
this is a belt powered hammer. The power for this
tool comes through a shaft between the buildings. The shaft runs through
a trench under steel plates.
In the Machine Shop,
the first (and rather impressive) machine you see is
this wheel press. This is used to press wheels off of and onto axles.
All the electrical power in the shops and much of the town was provided by
this steam powered Westinghouse DC generator.
This is the large locomotive wheel lathe. Even such a large machine as this
was run from the overhead belt system.
This large Hand Press resides in the
M-4 is the oldest of the little diesels at the EBT. Today it rides the
to share a stall with M-7.
M-4 waits on #12's stall lead for #14 to come in for the night.
The EBT's only snow plow sets upside-down in the lumber shed. It was
simply bolted to the locomotive pilot and pushed along the rails.
One of only two EBT hoppers with wood rather than steel height extenders
sets on the old Coach House track. The other car is in the
Mount Union Yard.
