Introduction to RailCamp: Steam locomotives no longer cross the United States as they did years ago, but the vintage railroading industry, along with its modern counterpart, is alive and well today. Positions dealing with the restoration and management of these locomotives as well as modern ones exist worldwide. Opportunities to learn about them, however, do not. In recognition of this need, we developed the RailCamp program. The week long camp is designed to provide a rail history preservation background, railroad operations and career opportunities to high school students entering the 9th grade through the 12th grade. It is an excellent forum for young adults with similar interests to learn about the rail history movement while sharing ideas with peers from other parts of North America.
