1880 Train Hosts Second Annual

Prairie to Peaks Iron Horse Rail Summer Camp

The 1880 Train is hosting the second annual Prairie to Peaks Iron Horse Rail Summer Camp  in
partnership with the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) June 10-12 in Hill City, SD. Registration
forms are available online. Space is limited, and campers are selected on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The camp's main purpose is to teach young people, ages 11-15 years, rail safety around highway/rail grade
crossings, railroad rights-of-ways, rail equipment and rail operations. In addition, it educates them
about the many different crafts that are necessary to operate a railroad and exposes
them to the opportunities available in the rail industry.

The camp is free other than transportation to and from Hill City, thanks to many sponsors.
Lodging, meals, transportation to Mount Rushmore, admission to the South Dakota
State Railroad Museum, bike rentals for exploring the George S Mickelson
Trail and a T-shirt are included with the camp.

"Registrations have doubled this year," says camp organizer Ken Naylor,
who is also a railroad safety specialist/chief inspector with the
FRA of the U.S. Department of Transportation. "The 1880
Train is the perfect place in the Black Hills to provide
this opportunity for our future railroad fans."

The Black Hills Central Railroad is a heritage railroad that operates in South Dakota.
Address: 222 Railroad Ave, Hill City, SD 57745. Phone: (605) 574-2222
