Welcome, come volunteer with our team!

Southeastern Railway Museum in the Duluth area needs anyone with mechanical experience, bodywork, small or diesel engine repair, carpentry or electrical wiring skills. We need your help with restoring and preserving our fleet of antique railcars. Our goal is to have our train cars looking and running museum ready. This takes a lot of shop time.

We have experienced people who will instruct you and lead the project. We just need your help. Pass this along to anyone who might be able to help preserve these historic pieces for future generations.
