Bill was active with Steamtown throughout the 1970s and 1980s and assisted with the collection’s relocation to Scranton, Penna. During the early 1980s he worked with Jerry Jacobson on the restoration of a locomotive and returned to work with Jerry in the late 1990s. From 2014 to the present Bill is employed at the Roundhouse as mechanic as well as working as a tour guide for our Roundhouse tours.

In addition to performing locomotive and equipment repairs, Bill conducts extensive research to faithfully repaint and letter locomotives freight cars, and other parts of the collection. At the time of this writing, Bill has lettered more than 20 pieces of Age of Steam’s railroad equipment collection and replicated numerous vintage signs for use at the facility.
Greg R. Miller hired-on with the Ohio Central Railroad System in 2001 as a maintenance-of-way employee where he operated many types of on-rail track equipment for the replacement of rails and ties. Greg was instrumental in the construction and maintenance of the rail yard, turntable trackage and turnouts here at AoS, and works as a mechanic for our rail equipment repairs.
