March 13 – Annual Rules Class

Our 2021 Annual Rules Class will take place Saturday, March 13, 2021, taught virtually via Zoom. 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. to complete your tests. Safety Rules are for ALL museum volunteers, while Operating and Air Brakes are required for all train crew volunteers. 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 safety rules, 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 (car host, brakeman, conductor, or engineer).

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

Please have your Rulebook and Timetable so you can refer to it during class. If you don’t have one, these books will be issued to you either as PDF files or hard copy upon request. You must RSVP to Frank Gough by March 10.
