Volunteers Make It All Happen
From museum and railway operations to the continuous development of our archives -- Nearly all activity at the Western Railway Museum is carried out by dedicated volunteers. You are welcome to join us! Volunteers are needed in all departments. No experience is necessary and we provide all necessary training. All you need to bring is a willingness to work with a friendly, welcoming and passionate group of people!
Thanks to our donors, museum volunteers are making progress on many projects. Repair and rehabilitation of our Birney Safety Car - Sacramento Northern #62 is one example.
