Dates and Times


Get your chance to operate one of many historic diesel-electric locomotives on the Whitewater Valley Railroad main line as a guest engineer. Each guest engineer will participate in a brief operational training session before sitting at the throttle for 30 minutes of actual hands-on locomotive operations. The locomotive will operate "light", without attached train cars. Operation will begin with a walk-around inspection and orientation to the locomotive, followed by basic instruction on safety, operation, starting and stopping.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older, with normal vision and hearing, and able to climb steps into the locomotive cab unassisted. Participants will be asked to sign a waiver of liability in case of injury or accident.
