A tourist railroad is born
Inspired by the success of the East Broad Top and Strasburg Railroads, management makes the decision to enter the excursion business. 2-6-2 Number 11, a former-Morehead & North Fork Baldwin, is purchased and rebuilt. Passenger equipment is acquired from the Erie Lackawanna, Reading, and the Baltimore & Ohio.
Whitcomb #56 is replaced with another Whitcomb of the same type, #6506.
