Connecticut - Valley Railroad Company - Your Hand on the Throttle

Essex, CT - The Valley Railroad Company is proud of its educational program: Your Hand on the Throttle. It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn about and actually operate a full size steam locomotive. Registrants will receive home study materials covering railroad and steam locomotive safety plus information on basic steam locomotive theory and operation. At the beginning of each session (8:00 am or 12:00 pm) each group will receive instruction on steam locomotive operation and be given a safety test. Following the test each member of the group will be allowed to operate one of our steam locomotives under the direct and constant supervision of our crew on an approximately one hour trip over The Valley Railroad
