    In our Grand Gallery you can experience a variety of railroad jobs. Along with our tour guide, try your hand at the brakeman’s job, learn how he coupled cars and applied the brakes. Become a carman and inspect hot boxes on a truck or a track-man working on building a section of railroad track or a motorman and operate the streetcar controls.
