EBT appointed Robert S. Seibert to President and General Manager. In an effort to revitalize the railroad Seibert contracted American Bridge Company to replace the wooden trestle with a steel one that would support standard-gauge equipment. He also upgraded all rails from 30 lb. rail to 60lb rail. (EBT is narrow gauge). SOURCE: http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage
