Steel Crew

Depending on the weather, this crew may work on car trucks, or on boxcar 955. Steve Jacobs leads the Steel Crew.

Ground Rules

To take part you must be 18 and a member of the FEBT (or join the FEBT at the work site.) These are insurance requirements. We are guests of the railroad and need to behave accordingly.

Last-minute walk-ons are always welcome at our sessions, but if possible, drop me an e-mail in advance to let me know that you are coming. It helps with the planning.

See you there!
