Have you ever wanted to work on railroad equipment, restore a locomotive or railcar, or learn the ins and outs of everyday railroad equipment? The mechanical department is right up your alley! Members of the mechanical department are responsible for keeping our vast collection of operational equipment running and in top working order.

The mechanical department also oversees the restoration of equipment we are trying to get back into service. Be advised: you WILL get dirty!.
You can help us keep our equipment in tip top shape. There are many jobs ranging from keeping our equipment clean, to doing required maintenance, to keeping our grounds clean and trimmed.
