Boothbay, ME - Engineer’s Society: Put Yourself at the Throttle!

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to operate a steam locomotive! Have you dreamed of putting your hand on the throttle of an authentic steam locomotive? The Boothbay Railway Village is announcing a brand new experience called the Engineer’s Society which allows guests to do just that!

Work directly with our Chief Engineer, learning one on one about the operation of the steam locomotive. Your ground course will cover basic railroad and steam locomotive safety, as well as basic steam locomotive theory and operation.

Following the instruction, each student climbs aboard and operates one of the Museum’s Henschel steam locomotives under the direct and constant supervision of our Chief Engineer for approximately thirty minutes. Your family is encouraged to take pictures as you approach the station “at the throttle!”
