Diesel Throttle Time at HVRM

Post by rbarcus » Sat Mar 05, 2011 11:27 pm

Here's a rare treat to operate a diesel locomotive at the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson. Receive a full hour of supervised engineer experience, general instruction in railroad safety and locomotive operation before putting your own train together and heading out of town on the former C&O mainline. Highball your train just like a real engineer - ring the bell, sound the horn and operate the controls! The program fee is $175.00.

Reserve your seat in the cab for this limited opportunity by purchasing this special guest engineer package on our website:

You'd have a waiting list if C&O 2789 were involved.

If anyone is still interested, we have a couple of diesel throttle time slots available with our Erie-Lackawanna Alco S1 no. 310. This is on a first-come, first-served basis and should be an exciting experience!
