ORGANIZATION: Travel Town Museum Foundation

  • 55 people are interested
We need LEADERS

You will be working on the restoration of several of the railcars at Travel Town. Work could include sanding, cleaning, painting, building and refurbishing wood, metal, and plastic surfaces inside or outside the railcars.

Depending on your skills and availability, you can work with or for Project managers on the restoration of historic passenger cars and locomotives at our Museum. We would love for you to prove your reliability, responsibility and leadership abilities with us to take on restoration projects at the Museum that prolong and extend the life of these Museum Pieces, while keeping as historically accurate as possible. You will be working with other Museum volunteers, sometimes in a leadership role, if you are able to manage other people.

Projects can be range from replacing a wheel on a cart to replacing a stair mechanism in a vestibule, from changing light bulbs to replacing an diesel engine on a locomotive. If you are willing to learn and continue serving the Museum, we are willing to train you, as well.
