No experience is necessary, as we will be providing training. we have needs other than railroading, we are needing people to help with video work, video talent and content creators. Whatever your talent you may have we will find a way for you to fit in. The only requirement to volunteer is you must be a member to be covered on our insurance
We depend on our annual membership dues of $50.00 to pay our expenses that includes the insurance and registration of our rail cars. It also includes our internet services. As our membership continues to grow we will be adding additional member benefits and events.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
