On [TBD] the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum will be offering our 3rd Railroad Merit Badge Class and Sign-Off Day. This class gives local Boy Scouts of America an opportunity to earn their Railroading Merit Badge. Scouts will participate in various activities that will fulfill the Railroading Merit Badge requirements, including an interactive Amtrak history tour (time permitting), learning basic signals, model train displays, whistle/horn demonstrations, and learning from Operation Lifesaver presenters about rail safety.
If you wish to enroll, you MUST enroll directly though the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum; enrollment cannot be done through troops as reservations are made exclusively through the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum. Those who do not pre-enroll through SLORRM will not be admitted on the day of class. Space is limited and registration is available to the first 20 scouts that enroll!
*Cost is $25: Cost includes a model railroad kit and materials for the day.
*8 prerequisites will be assigned before the class and must be completed by the day of the class!
Registration ends on October 8th or when 20 participants register.
