Volunteer Locomotive Fireman (July - October)
Please visit the new page to apply.
Golden Spike National Historical Park is looking for volunteers to assist the locomotive engineers with the upkeep, maintenance, and operation of the park's two replica 1868 steam locomotives during the 2022 operating season. This strenuous, but rewarding opportunity allows volunteers to experience what it was like to be on a locomotive as a fireman in the late 1860s, in a location steeped in American railroading history, all the while helping to interpret the park's significant cultural resource to countless visitors. Housing in the form of a trailer pad may be available for a 32 hour a week commitment.
Beginning in January 2022, all volunteers accessing NPS buildings must:
- Complete and present a Certification of Vaccination form (OMB Control No. 3206-0277). If they have NOT attested to being fully vaccinated, they must also possess and present a negative COVID-19 test result from within the 3 days immediately prior to the date of entry; and
- Maintain completed form (and test result, if necessary) on their person for the duration of their visit and present it to the volunteer manager or supervisor, as needed; and
- Comply with all public health protocols in place at the park or office.
