Want to be a member of our operating train crews? There will be a two-day hands-on class on October 4 and 18, 2014. To qualify as a brakeman trainee, both of these days of training are necessary. Another sixteen hours of classroom training, two four-hour sessions and one 8 hour session are required. These will scheduled for various days next spring.
The classes are open to anyone, 16 years of age and above. However, a minimum age of 18 is required to be qualified as a brakeman. The job can be physically demanding, but if you are interested, come out and give the class a try to see if you can do it. And, we consider the traditional "brakeman" term to be gender neutral, so ladies are welcome too!
The only prerequisite for taking the classes and getting certified as a brakeman is to be a member of the Museum. There are other membership benefits too, please check our Membership Page for further information. You may sign-up for membership here.
