1          Find an object at home you can use to practice the signals, such as a lantern, bucket, flashlight, glow sticks in a basket, any item you choose (you can even use your favorite stuffed animal).

2          Practice the signals used by train engineers, conductors, and depot workers listed below.  Talk about other types of signals people use, such as lights, signs, whistles, horns, etc.

3          We like to play stop and go games with the signals at the museum.  Some children get to send signals, others act like engineers and follow the signal. ***the signals show below are the actual signals used on the Tooele Valley Railway.  They came from the 1910 rule book.
