Larry Salone, president of the East Broad Top Railroad Preservation Association, explained that the new 501(c)3 corporation had been organized to purchase the East Broad Top Railroad from the Kovalchick family of Indiana, Pennsylvania. The goal of the Preservation Association is the long-term preservation of the EBT; short-term goals include maintaining operations, improving visitor amenities, and developing a plan for rehabilitating and restoring the railroad's historic equipment and shop complex. When completed, the purchase will incorporate the EBT right of way from Mount Union to Robertsdale; all locomotives, rolling stock, and equipment; and other EBT assets like the railroad's herald. While in his public remarks Mr. Salone underscored the importance of the EBT to the economic future of southern Huntingdon County, he noted that a childhood visit to the EBT in 1964 had led to his lifetime interest as a railfan in both the EBT and railroading in general.
Mr. Salone noted that one of his tasks is to increase operating revenue to support the railroad's operations and development, since income from the surrounding property-retained by the Kovalchick family-will no longer be available to offset deficits from railroad operations. Improvements to the EBT gift shop and its inventory are now under way, and plans to improve other aspects of the visitor experience are in the works. Mr. Salone stressed that he saw his immediate job as generating more publicity for the railroad, both to stimulate more visitors to the EBT and to enhance public support for the railroad's preservation. He also stated that he hoped to secure the funds needed to complete the purchase of the railroad as soon as possible, and he planned to seek grants and other private and public financial support for critical work-like returning a second steam locomotive to operation-required to sustain operating and preservation efforts.
Mr. Salone, a member of FEBT since the early 1990s, is businessman and entrepreneur active in central Pennsylvania. A mechanical engineering graduate of Pennsylvania State University, he is an owner or investor in several engineering/fabrication companies and several restaurants. In 2007 he assumed management of the Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum and Horseshoe Curve National Historic Site. Mr. Salone indicated that he will draw no compensation for his work at the EBT.
Mr. Salone has already met with FEBT restoration volunteers at Rockhill Furnace, where he emphasized the importance he placed on working constructively with FEBT to support both train operations and restoration efforts focused on historic equipment and structures.

All in all, an ambitious, exhausting schedule, but Larry Salone, the head of the East Broad Top Preservation Association, is committed to proving that the EBT is a viable tourist attraction as well as an amazing historic landmark.
Details for the latter program are still in the works, but you can be sure you'll get plenty dirty and real sore. - Lawrence
