The course is open to both novices and those who already have some experience or knowledge of steam locomotives.

The class format is a one-day classroom session of theory and understanding, followed by a day of actual locomotive operation. This is a rare and exciting opportunity for those interested in steam engines and steam railroading.

New Hampshire - J.E. Henry Railway at Loon Mountain New
Lincoln, NH - J.E. Henry Railway at Loon Mountain

Learn to Operate the Steam-Powered J.E. Henry Railway at Loon Mountain If you've ever dreamed of conducting a steam locomotive, then Loon's Guest Engineer Program was made for you.

The Guest Engineer Program gives train enthusiasts a chance to learn all about Loon's German-built 0-4-0T engine, which runs along the resort's J.E. Henry Railroad. The railroad, which shuttles skiers and snowboarders 600-feet between its two main base lodges every winter, harkens back to the narrow-gauge logging trains that ran through New Hampshire's White Mountains more than a century ago. Originally built to burn coal, the engine was retrofitted to burn wood when it came to Loon in the 1970s.
