Scouts BSA Rail Day
October 16, 2021
8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The N.C. Transportation Museum is excited to announce Scouts BSA Rail Day on October 16, 2021. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we will not host overnight camping for 2021. Scouts BSA Rail Day is a full day of activities including a train ride, flag ceremony, and workshops to help scouts interact with other troops and work together to earn their Railroading Merit Badge. Scouts will learn how to identify different types of railcars, how diesel-electric locomotives work, the importance of railroad signals, and more.
Given the continued threat of COVID-19 and variants of the virus, face masks are required for indoor areas of the N.C. Transportation Museum, including on trains. Masks must be worn at all times except while actively eating or drinking. Failure to comply may result in denial of boarding or removal. Children under the age of two and individuals with disabilities who cannot wear a mask, or cannot safely wear a mask, because of the disability as defined by the Americans with Disability Act are exempt.
