Steam Boiler Certification
Section 867(g) of the OCME Operating Rules requires that all steam
locomotives have a current OCME Pressure Certification on file in the
Club House. Pressure Certifications were to take place in March 2020.
Due to the COVID-19 imposed shutdown none took place. This means
that ALL Steam Locomotives must have a new pressure certification
to be able to operate on our facility. Schedule with Dixon Now!!
