This hand car is the last known to exist intact from the East Broad Top. The handcar was still on the property in 1960 when the railroad started tourist operations. Later it was sold to a collector. Subsequently it was sold in 1984 to the Friends of the EBT. FEBT restored the car and it is periodically demonstrated. Most recently it was on display at the EBT's 40th Anniversarry of tourist operations.

Though operable, the car currently is in need of some moderate repairs.
