Each year the EBT has a Spring and Fall "Spectacular" where numerous trains are operated with double heading and sometimes even triple heading engines.  I took my 2 1/2 year old son Joey to the Fall 1999 spectacular on October 9th and Joey took his first train ride on the EBT.  The photos below are taken from Video taken during this event.
