Every aspect of the Museum, from Conductor to Motorman to restoration specialist to archivist to museum store operations, is run by volunteers.
Be it once per week, once per month, in one of our well-established departments, or just during special events like the Pumpkin Patch each October, or the Scenic Limited trains each April, we need your help!
We provide equal opportunities for men and women. It doesn’t matter if you have special skills or not; we provide all the necessary training. All you need is a willingness to learn, some spare time, and an interest in supporting the Museum’s mission to preserve and interpret the regional heritage of electric railways.
We are currently seeking:
Docents to give tours and lead interpretive activities.
Maintenance and Restoration Shop Crew Members to keep our historic operating fleet in tip-top shape. The Shop crew meets Wednesdays and Saturdays each week. We especially need people skilled with metal working, woodworking, welding, machinists, carpenters, electricians, mechanical engineers, and electrical engineers. Even if you don’t have these skills but would like to learn, come volunteer in the Shop.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn to operate one of our historic trains, now is your chance! Train operations are the heart of our visitor experience. We’ve revamped our rules and training programs to make the process easier and more fun. Fulfill your lifelong dreams of operating real trains!
