Railroading Merit Badge Class

From Michelle Bradford:
I am an Asst. Scoutmaster with Troop 487 in Alvin, TX as well as a member of the Train Collectors Association and I am writing to let your troop know about an upcoming opportunity to complete the Railroading Merit Badge.
  • I am offering the merit badge on June 24 and 25 at the Marriot Westchase in Houston.  Boys are welcome to attend with their families or as a group.
  • The Railroading Merit Badge sessions are being held in conjunction with the Train Collectors Association’s annual convention.  There is no fee for the merit badge session.  Leaders and family members will be admitted free of charge as long as they are in Class A or B uniforms.An adult must remain on site.
  • Sessions will take 3-4 hours to complete.

Let me know if you have any questions.
