Friends of the East Broad Top, Inc. (FEBT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt educational and historical society dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the East Broad Top Railroad National Historic Landmark in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania.


FEBT and its members are currently engaged in several activities. The most visible is restoration work on the East Broad Top Railroad (EBT), focused around the Rockhill Furnace, Pennsylvania and Robertsdale, Pennsylvania stations. FEBT volunteers and FEBT-paid contractors work to stabilize and restore historic parts of the EBT.

FEBT operates a developing museum in Robertsdale in the original EBT railroad station. The museum displays artifacts and memorabilia from the 150 years of EBT history. The museum is housed in the FEBT-owned original EBT Robertsdale station. FEBT also owns the adjacent Rockhill Iron and Coal Company Post Office, which is being restored to become larger permanent museum, at which time the station will be restored to its period interior.


FEBT owns the EBT Robertsdale station and the Rockhill Iron and Coal Company Post Office, also in Robertsdale. FEBT owns two former EBT passenger cars, combine car #18 and baggage car #29 and plans to restore them to service. They also own the only existing original EBT handcar and an original EBT Fairmont speeder. The group has a long term lease on original EBT combine car #16 and are working to build reproduction trucks for the car.
