It's time for YOU to be “At the Throttle” of an authentic, restored, coal-fired steam locomotive, Jeddo Coal #85, also known as “Mack”. No previous locomotive experience is required. The program is a unique opportunity for rail fans to live their dream of running a steam engine, taking a trip back in time to the golden age of railroading. A qualified engineer will be in the cab at all times, but participants will enjoy a full half hour operating the engine (following a safety orientation), take home a certificate and a souvenir hat.
