Volunteers Make It All Happen
Track and overhead lines work, restoration projects, museum and railway operations, the continuous development of our archives -- Nearly all activity at the Western Railway Museum is carried out by dedicated volunteers. Won't you consider joining us in the new year? Volunteers are needed in all departments. No experience is necessary and we will 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.
Maintenance Week 2017 - Join the fun!
Our 2017 Maintenance Week will take place May 22-26. It's a great opportunity for new volunteers to explore possibilities. Lend a hand as we cycle our operating fleet through the shop for annual maintenance, or discover other museum departments. Everyone is welcome!
