CHESTERFIELD – Connor Brooks and his crew of helpers saw an important need and they knew they could help.

Because they did, the Richmond Railroad Museum has a new mini-bridge and Brooks is a step closer to his Eagle rank.

Brooks’ Eagle project greatly improved the access and safety for the museum’s former Seaboard Coast Line caboose No. 21019 – one of the most popular attractions there. Joining Brooks were fellow Chester Troop No. 2815 Scouts Alex Anderson and Seth Kindberg.

The museum thanked Brooks and his team for what they called “their enduring contribution to the museum.”
