If you’ve been captivated by the giant steam traction engines rolling around the grounds at a show and wanted to explore a new corner of the old iron hobby, consider enrolling in a steam school during the 2018 show season.

Attending a steam class is a great way to gain hands-on experience in the cleaning and operation of steam engines under the supervision of qualified instructors, and connect with others with varying levels of steam experience. Most schools provide meals and materials, and some schools even offer credit toward a license. As always, be sure to register early as classes have limited space and fill up quickly! FC
