    I'd like to have the opportunity to just walk around an engine, examine its various internal and external controls, without the pressure (sometimes annoyance) of driving it. These could resemble the semi-freeroam switching sessions now available on some routes, but here one could also refuel, fiddle with all controls, enter and exit the cab as desired, etc.
    I realize that this can be done in a way by entering a given area of a route on foot, but what I have in mind is a more official version of this.
    Does this make sense?

    i would like to think maybe this could be combined with a museum idea where you have all the trains in a museum and can look arround

    That's not really what I had in mind, jamesbibbs; rather, I was imagining something that might be involved in learning to be an engineer. At any rate, given the availability of fueling points and their use being described in manuals, incorporating them into so few activities strikes me as strange.
