The Boothbay Railway Village conducts a two-day course, on October 19 & 20, on the operation and theory of the coal-fired steam locomotive. Included in this fascinating educational and popular experience will be the opportunity to participate in "hands-on" training with the museum's vintage locomotives under the supervision of qualified museum staff.
The course is, not only for those with no or little knowledge of the operation of steam engines, but also for those with some knowledge and a desire to enhance their understanding of steam locomotives.
There is a one-day session of theory and understanding, then a second session of actual locomotive operation. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for those interested in getting a valuable experience of steam engines and steam railroading.
