Post subject:  Tuscarora Valley RR Combine Body to EBT For Preservation

The body of a former Tuscarora Valley Railroad narrow-gauge passenger-and-baggage combine was moved on Nov. 20th from private property to temporary storage at the East Broad Top Railroad at Rockhill Furnace, Pa. This car is the last remaining piece of rolling stock from the three-foot-gauge Tuscarora Valley Railroad, which ran from Port Royal to Blairs Mills in Juniata and Huntingdon Counties, Pennsylvania, a distance of 27 miles, from 1891 to 1934.

Stephen Lane, a 21-year-old senior at Juniata College and a part-time steam engineer at the Everett Railroad and Steam Into History operations, successfully acquired the car body at auction in September, and made arrangements to have the body trucked to the EBT for temporary storage and possible restoration. Long-term goals include reproduction trucks, rebuilding the end sills and platforms, installing windows, and finding or replicating seats and other interior fittings.
