Prepare to take the reins of the Iron Horse! “At the Throttle” is coming to the Oklahoma Railway Museum this fall and will provide a unique opportunity for rail fans to live their dream of running a steam locomotive. On Friday, October 27 and November 3 and Sunday morning on October 29 and November 5, you’ll be able to power down the tracks behind Lehigh Valley Coal Company #126.

No previous locomotive experience is required. A qualified engineer will be in the cab at all times, and participants will enjoy a half-hour of operating the engine (including safety orientation).

Participants must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver’s license. Signed release forms are required. Clothing appropriate to a working railyard should be worn at all times. Jeans or overalls and boots are recommended. Participants wishing to have their picture made should bring a camera. Friends or family or a member of the crew can take a photo of each “At the Throttle” participant.
