Troop 973’s adventure on rails

Scouts from Troop 973, Chicago, Ill., spend a day riding the motor cars of the historic Appanoose County Community Railroad while working on their Railroading merit badge and putting their own car on the tracks for the first time.

Watch video of one of the motor cars crossing a bridge, or click on the following photos to see Troop 973’s adventure on rails.
