Railroading Merit Badge Workshop
November 7, 2020


Open to All Boy Scouts & Adult Leaders

Following the merit badge requirements, Scouts participate in a series of six workshops. Successful completion of the activities will earn the Railroading Merit Badge.

During this engaging program, we learn about rail safety, how locomotives work, what freight trains carry, how to plan a train trip, railroad signaling, and the inner workings of the National Railroad Museum.

Cub Scouts are welcome to participate. Activities can be applied toward completion of other awards, but will not count for the Railroading Merit Badge.

  • Open to: all Boy Scouts and adult leaders
  • In-Person Capacity: 25 Boy Scouts, 15 adult leaders
  • Digital Workshop Capacity: 30 Boy Scouts

Registration: ALL registration will be completed electronically through the National Railroad Museum website. General Registration will remain open until the workshop capacity is reached.

Blue Cards: Blue Merit Badge Cards will be provided by the museum.

(No prerequisites. Reading the Railroading Merit Badge Book is recommended.)
