Railroading Merit Badge

Railroading Merit Badge

The Railroading Merit Badge Workshop is held annually at the National Railroad Museum, typically in November. The 2022 workshop will be held November 5.

Following the merit badge requirements, Scouts participate in a series of six workshops. Successful completion of the activities will earn the Railroading Merit Badge. Blue Merit Badge Cards will be provided by the Museum.

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. Participants are encouraged to read the Railroading Merit Badge Book before attending the workshop.

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

The Railroading Merit Badge Workshop is open to all Boy Scouts and adult leaders. The capacity is 300 Scouts and 100 adult leaders.

All registration will be completed electronically through the National Railroad Museum website. The link will be activated in fall 2022. General registration will remain open until workshop capacity is reached.


$10 per person.
