Boy Scouts ride the rails

Boy Scout troop 4076 takes a railroading merit badge class in Campo, Calif. PHOTO MATTHEW DESSERT

The rain the night before brought in the fog, which floated all around the trees. A long mass of steel on a track was shrouded by fog. As the fog disappeared, it was revealed to be a train.

After the Boy Scout Troop 4076 learned all about the safety and history of railroading, they all got on one of the passenger trains at Campo for a quick train ride to better understand what they had learned from their instructor.
