Thoughts and prayers go out to all those effected by the fire to one of the major skyline buildings in Huntingdon. To all the residents who was displaced we send prayers. Thanks to all the first responders who spent all night and still there as we speak. This is one of the towns historic buildings. Here’s some shots of how we reproduced the building as an access hole to be able to clean and repair the layout we built in the Isett Heritage Museum in Huntingdon. Sorry to loose such a great piece of history. Fire photos from another’s page. We did not take those. Credits to those who provided coverage of scene and assist with all that was needed.

Pics from Saturday’s work session. Eric, Jon and Bob worked on the Haunt (no pics to maintain integrity of the attraction). It is definitely undergone serious changes and should be very exciting for visitors in October. Charlie worked on various electrical projects. Dave, Bryan and George continued work on a number of Museum projects.

Tonight Dave and Brian continued painting the ceiling. Jon, Bob and Vince went thru many boxes of items donated from Chambersburg High School from their haunted house to use in the haunt fundraiser coming in October. Thanks to Shelby for hooking us up! The items was separated and taken to the basement. Charlie put the final coat of paint in the bathroom since having to add another handrail. The door has been painted and ready to put in place once trim is painted.

Last night we had only a few members there. Dave and Brian began putting the final coat of paint on the ceiling. Charlie worked on needed handrail in bathroom and some of the rolling stock. JT and Dave and Bob had some talks while Charlie had a Friends of the East Broad Top conference call. Bob, Brett and his son Nick began the process of rebuilding the haunt for the October 2020 season.

Pics from tonight’s work session. Cleaning up from the Valentines Weekend Haunted Warehouse and preparing for the final push to finish the major renovations! We need to paint the final coat on ceiling and walls in the front area, paint the wall repairs in the bathroom, install the new front door, upgrade the new display cabinets, clean up the layout room and wax those floors. The light at the end of the tunnel is growing larger!

2019 Bloody Valentine Weekend February 15 - 16, 7pm-11pm.
Hey Bricktown Museum, What is your total # of thrill seekers for the haunted warehouse so far??
Ray Singer 22 hrs · On Sat Sept 22 10-4 and Sunday 11-4 Bud Parks and I will be having our train layouts open for anyone who wants to see them. In case of bad weather Bud won't have it open because it is outside and mine will be, It is my basement. Turn off 22 to Newtown Hamilton and WATCH for signs to our layouts. Bud is approx .6th of a mile from crossroads and I am 3th of a mile back Big Greenbriar Rd
1907 featuring The elevated tracks, with PRR #7002 engine at the finished Station after dedication # 1 of 3 in the series I painted, working on #2 which will feature EBT #7 known as 'AUGHWICK' that was nearly destroyed in the fire at EBT, it was rebuilt, couldn't find a lot of pictures of it, so mainly going on the drawings and the photo of the remains after the fire...I haven't chosen what #3 will feature as of yet. Hope you will support all the hard work going on in at this great Museum, please donate to the donation page so this legacy of what was the largest brick producing town in the world, in it's time, will have a preserved legacy for future generations...
Hope it's ok to share this here. There are two auctions of a variety of model trains and accessories coming up in York, PA. If interested, please check www.auctionsbykeystone,com for more information.
Check out the Gibsonville Garden Railroad on Facebook. Gibsonville is outside Raleigh NC. Passed by this the other day. It’s in the middle of town. Very cool.
