The TCU/IAM Advanced Training Services Department held a dedication ceremony last month for a recently donated Union Pacific Railroad rail car at the Excelsior Springs Job Corps Center in Missouri.

Students enrolled in the TCU/IAM trade will now be able to learn the skills of their craft by practicing on a real rail car stationed on campus, Transportation Communications Union/International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers officials said in a press release.

The center is one of three in the nation to offer such hands-on training opportunities, they said.
