The Ironhorse Rail Camp will be held at the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City from June 9 through June 12. The camp is focused on participants having a maximum hands-on experience operating two vintage motorcars: 1926 Edwards and 1910 McKeen(the only operating McKeen car). Ex V&T locomotive 25, a 1905 Baldwin 4-6-0 will be used for hands-on instruction in both firing and engineering. The camp is limited to 8 participants in order to ensure plenty of individual time on each piece of equipment. When not operating the equipment the participants will be instructed in various other railroad skills such as brakeman, conductor and locomotive hostler. The cost is $1295 and includes breakfast and lunch each day as well as a banquet dinner. For additional information contact Adam Michalski, Curator of Education at 775-687-6953 ext. 224 or you can sign up at www.nsrm-friends.org. This is the fourth time the camp has been held and past participant reviews have been universally positive. You must be 18 to participate. The camp is currently 50% booked.
