Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Eastern Nebraska Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society is dedicated to the preservation of all aspects of rail history, including both the restoration of historic rail equipment and the preservation of the railroad experience for the general public. Through education and entertainment, the impact and importance of railroads for our nation in the past, present and future, are preserved and shared with the public.
The Eastern Nebraska Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society (ENCNRHS) is one of over 170 chapters of the National Railway Historical Society. We are operated by a dedicated staff of volunteers. As with other chapters, the purpose of the Eastern Nebraska Chapter is the preservation of the historical aspects of railroads along with education of the public as to the present and future values of the railroad industry. In connection with these goals, the Chapter operates a railroad museum and a functioning railroad. The railroad depot houses a compact, but well-furnished, museum of railroad artifacts. The depot is also the point of departure for the railroad activities. The railroad operates under the name of the Fremont & Elkhorn Valley Railroad (FEVR). FEVR operates over track of approximately 17 miles from Fremont to the municipality of Hooper, passing through the Village of Nickerson. The Fremont & Elkhorn Valley Railroad is Nebraska's longest and largest tourist railroad. The path of this track was laid out in 1869, and until the mid-1980's served as the gateway route for the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad to northern Nebraska, Wyoming and South Dakota.
