About this event

The Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania offers boys and girls ages 11-17 who are involved in scouting the opportunity to earn the merit badge in Railroading. Learn through the use of historic images and artifacts, model trains, and behind-the-scenes tours!

The program runs from 9 AM to 12 PM. All requirements except for the "At Home Requirement" are fulfilled on the day of the workshop. There are no prerequisites.

After the virtual course, Scouts will be asked to complete the final, "At Home Requirement". Please check the "At Home Requirement" on the Online Event Page for more details. This requirement is listed in the BSA Railroading Merit Badge Handbook and cannot be completed virtually.

Fillable blue cards may be signed by your Scoutmaster prior to the program. A link to the Fillable Blue Card is on the Online Event page. Another way to get your blue card signed is through the Scoutbook website https://scoutbook.scouting.org/mobile/.

Scouts must be accompanied by an adult at all times, as per BSA guidelines. Every effort is made to adhere to the schedule, so please arrive on time in the virtual room. Space is limited. The workshop is capped at 30 scouts and filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
