Sandy Ridge Station

A small section of East Broad Top Railroad tracks lie in front of Sandy Ridge Station in Orbisonia. The plaza’s businesses and several other have seen the benefits of EBT visitors.

With an influx of rail fans from all over the U.S. and abroad visiting the East Broad Top Railroad, businesses in and around the twin boroughs of Orbisonia and Rockhill are starting to feel the impacts, beginning with the recent Winter Spectacular.

Brandon Brown, manager of the Sandy Ridge Market, Sandy Ridge Express and A&W Restaurant in the Sandy Ridge Station, stated his businesses saw a significant increase in business during Locomotive No. 16’s debut in February.
