The THA will conduct training for those who will operate and give rides to the public this Summer on the AMRR Crew Maintenance Vehicle (Speeder) on Saturday, June 27 from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM with a lunch break (see attached training schedule). Dates for scheduled operation are July 11 (THA organization and VIP Day), July 25, August 29, Sept 26. These are the last Saturdays of the month. If demand requires it, we can add Saturdays in August, and September other than the the third Saturday, which would conflict with Steam-ups at Ft. Humboldt. The training will be at the roundhouse at the AMRR Speeder stall–we have chairs. Please plan to check in at 8:30 AM so that we can begin promptly at 9:00 AM. Note: Marcus has arranged for a portable toilet on a permanent basis for our complex.

We will ask (if not require) a donation of $4.00 for adults, and $2.00 for children for rides. We will have tickets, which will be punched by the conductor before the ride. Rides will be on a scheduled run of 20 to 24 minutes each, two per hour. Thus the tickets can be sold for a scheduled time and our guests will not have to wait in line. We will take telephone reservations for scheduled runs on the Friday before each Saturday operation. The starting point will be the parking area to the right of our gate.

We will hand out Operations Booklets to each trainee. Certificates will be awarded to those who complete the training. Those who wish to qualify as drivers must have experience driving a standard transmission or “stick” shift. You will be asked to complete an availability calendar to help us create a work schedule. We plan to have two shifts with operations from 9 to 12:30 and 12:30 to 4:00 requiring at least four people per shift.
