March 3 – Annual Rules Class for Volunteers

Our 2018 Annual Rules Class will take place Saturday, March 3, 2018, at the 40 & 8 Club, located at 933 University Ave., in Rochester, N.Y. The class begins at 8:00 a.m., and if you expect to take all three parts, plan on staying until at least 4:00 p.m.

This is the annual rules class required for all volunteers who wish to be qualified in train service this year. Rules Class is the first step for any new volunteers who want to become part of train crew or volunteer at the museum. The class is FREE to attend, but you must RSVP to Operations Supt. Jim Otto so we have enough class materials for everyone attending. The class is split into three parts.

PART ONE: SAFETY – Strongly suggested for ALL VOLUNTEERS, regardless if you are in train service or not. Covers basic rules, safety, radio rules, and customer service.

PART TWO: OPERATING – The second part of the class is devoted to rules of train operation. This second part is required for anyone interested in volunteering for train service (brakeman, conductor, or engineer).

PART THREE: AIR BRAKES – The third part of the class is devoted to air brakes and train handling. This third part is required for anyone interested in volunteering as a conductor or engineer.
