Our Troop will be visiting the Railroad Museum of New England in Thomaston, CT to spend a day learning about trains and railroading. We'll leave from Katonah early Saturday morning, drop our gear at camp, and head over to the railroad museum. Scouts will tour the depot, get a train ride, tour the heavy repair shops, learn about locomotives, and possiblly drive some spikes and learn how the trains keep running! We'll also perform a service project as thanks to the railroad. We'll be staying at Camp Mattatuck, operated by Three Rivers Council, BSA. Sunday morning we'll break camp and head for home. Our visit to the railroad will be covered by a $10 donation from each attendee.
