Hand Signal Training Video

Since it's Memorial Day weekend, I would normally be volunteering at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum, if it weren't for me being home sick with a head cold (One of my souvenirs from Maker Faire). I don't write about my work at the WPRM on here much, mainly because railroads tend to be unkind to photography equipment, but this museum has always been a big part of my community service schedule and technical education.

Since I'm not getting to spend the weekend working on historical railroad equipment, I figured I could instead tell you about the training video I've been helping with over this past winter which covers the hand signals and lantern signals we use when operating railroad equipment there:


Shameless plug: If getting to run a historic diesel locomotive sounds sufficiently interesting, we do offer you the chance to come drive one of ours for an hour.
