Event Description

Experience the thrill of being an engineer as you take the reins of a real steam locomotive during our exclusive "Be the Engineer" event. This rare opportunity allows you to immerse yourself in the world of steam railroading like never before. Under the guidance of seasoned railroad professionals, you'll have the chance to blow the whistle, operate the engine, and shovel coal in the firebox.

Join us on Sunday, September 10th and Saturday, October 7th for this unforgettable adventure. Please note that this experience is exclusively for individuals aged 15 and above, ensuring a safe and engaging environment for all participants.

During the one-hour session, you'll receive comprehensive instruction, including a safety briefing, to ensure you're well-prepared for your time as an engineer. With a minimal number of tickets available, this intimate experience guarantees a personalized and hands-on encounter with the steam locomotive.

The star of the show is the renowned Jeddo Coal #85 steam engine. Step into the engineer's seat and the fireman's seat as you alternate positions with your partner throughout the session. This unique arrangement allows both individuals to fully immerse themselves in the various responsibilities of operating the locomotive.

Please be aware that accessibility to the locomotive will be through a step ladder or similar device. Riders will also be required to wear eye protection for their safety. If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessibility, feel free to reach out to us at info@kentuckysteam.org before booking your tickets.
