New Operator Training Course
May 30 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
A New Operator Training Course is enrolling now. Have you ever wondered how fun it would be to operate antique streetcars? Are you one of the people who have taken many rides along the mainline while secretly wishing it was you at the controls? This is a wish that can be made a reality. Join our Operating Crew! Take a unique opportunity to join the women and men that make up our volunteer operating team. Become part of a dedicated group of individuals that enlighten and entertain our guests. You can channel your inner teacher as you demonstrate what travel was like a century ago.
It is a small commitment when compared to the awesome opportunity that awaits you. Sign up to participate in three classroom and field training sessions from 9AM-4PM on Saturdays May 23, May 30 and June 6. You will learn how to operate a variety of streetcars that are featured regularly in the Seashore operating fleet. You will be trained to understand and follow all of the procedures that are needed to safely run our railroad. There is some book learning but you will be “hands on” very quickly. Following the completion of classes, participants begin an apprenticeship in the field with our experienced instructors to ease into operating for our guests solo.
Participants in our New Operator Training Course must be members of the Museum and there is a small training fee of $35, which covers the cost of training materials and nameplate. No prior experience needed! Classes have been known to fill up, so don’t wait! Contact our Training Class Coordinator, Rich Pascucci, at [email protected] to learn more and to get signed up right away! Riding a trolley is great. Operating a trolley is fantastic! Let this be the year that you make your railfan fantasy a reality. Sign up now!
