Railroading Merit Badge at SLRR Rolling Stock Museum and VRC (2014-01-23)

Tonight Chris took the troop to learn more about Railroading.  We started our trip by heading to the SLRR Rolling Museum (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tropical%20Sands/139/195/21). The location has some great locomotives on display and you can see some interesting work by some of SL’s illustrious train builders, as well as read info about the RL locomotives.

After reading on the history of some famous locomotives we headed to one of the oldest RR Sims in SL. The SLRR VRC (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Anilis/212/50/102).

By earning this badge, Scouts can learn about the history of railroading, its place in modern society, careers in railroading, and hobbies related to railroading.
It was awesome to explore this multi Sim railroad network and appreciate the hard work put into building this SL transportation system as well as the detailed locomotives built in SL.
