A new and exciting option this year for At the Throttle Participants is a video option add-on! This add-on option will capture your experience of being the engineer or fireman on the 611 as you guide the locomotive down the rails. The footage will be captured by a member of the locomotive crew/museum staff and will be professionally edited for your enjoyment. Video will be taken from inside the locomotive cab and from the ground. Participants need to purchase their video for the correct day, then include the name of the participant and time of their experience in the notes on the order. Your video will be mailed to you a few days after your experience. Please allow 7-10 days for delivery.
