Scouts of America Merit Badge Class

Three times each year, the Los Angeles Railroad Heritage Foundation hosts a Scouts of America Merit Badge Class in downtown Los Angeles. Classes are designed to teach Scouts about railroad history, contemporary operations and careers, and -- most importantly -- safety. Professionals from Metro and BNSF Railway assist with teaching classes. Our goal is that with this class under their belts, Boy Scouts can be proactive leaders in the community in regards to train safety.


The next class to be held Saturday, October 19, and space is full. All submissions received in the future will be added to a waiting list for the next class in March 2020.

The Merit Badge Class is located on the 3rd floor of the Los Angeles MTA building, east of Union Station. Following a morning of classroom study, Scouts ride the Metro Gold Line to Del Mar station in Pasadena, site of the historic Santa Fe depot.

You will be added to the waiting list for the next class in March 2020. Classes are held three times a year.


The Merit Badge Class includes a workbook, notebook, morning snack, Spikes handout, a pre-loaded TAP card, and a voucher for free parking. Classes are announced 2-3 months before each date and typically fill up far in advance. We’re grateful to Metro and BNSF Railway for supporting this popular program.
