Midwest Railway Preservation Society volunteers work on a Bridgeport milling within the machine shop. Machine Shop foreman Bob Scott teaches the class. Efforts focus on railway preservation, which includes mentoring volunteers on machining skills to create the necessary components. The method of creating a needed part "in house" is a skill essential to understand the process first used to craft the trains. All volunteers are given a chance to learn and try their hand.
