The Rocky Mountain Division of the Train Collectors Association offers the opportunity for Scouts to work on and complete the requirements for the Railroading Merit Badge at our Summer and Winter holiday shows.
You can complete the following requirements for the Railroading Merit Badge at our shows. Requirement No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8a(3). If you have completed any of these or other requirements prior to the show, please bring your completed work or a written explanation to satisfy the requirement for review by a counselor.
There will be several displays throughout the show to help you complete the requirements.
Counselors will be on hand to review your work.
Current and retired railroad workers will be on hand to discuss the requirements and what you can do to be safe around railroads.
Wear your Scout uniform for free admission to the show. Parents and Scout families will be admitted for a discount by showing current Scout identification. Admission is good for both days. This offer is also extended to Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts, Explorer, Venture, Sea, or Air Scouts.
Come prepared to have fun and learn about Railroading and the fascinating world of trains both toy and prototype.
