Steam School 2017
November 18 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm| $40
Join the Bartholomew County Historical Society for the 2017 Steam School. Learn all about the 30,000 pound steam engine, from wheels to whistles! If you have ever envisioned yourself behind the wheel of the behemoth steam engine, this is your chance! Our steam engine tutors will teach all the steam engine basics, from stocking the fuel, checking the boilers, driving and steering, and of course, the whistle!
This 5 hour class includes lunch, and is a prerequisite for volunteering on the steam engine. All participants will be given an opportunity to drive the engine. If you want to join the steam crew, this class is for you!
The class runs on November 18th from 9 am until 2 pm. Cost is $40 per person. Registration is required. Call 812-372-3541 to reserve your spot.
