As part of the East Broad Top Railroad’s 2022 Winter Spectacular, a night photo session was offered and a cold EBT #12 aka “Millie” was the star of the shoot. Here the locomotive and crew members pose by the sand tower inside the Rockhill Furnace shop and yard complex.
Lighting was provided by Christopher Pollock, Steve Barry and Michael Burkhart. The smoke and steam effects were applied to the locomotive via smoke sticks.
East Broad Top Railroad #12 was the first and smallest mikado locomotive (2-8-2) to enter the EBT’s roster. Millie, as she was named in 1960 by owner Nick Kovalchick after his daughter, was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia in 1911 and was capable of hauling 15 loaded hoppers from the coal mines.
