Working on the Railroad!
The Northern Pacific Railway Museum needs your help
|Did you ever dream of becoming a railroad engineer?
Most of us did but never attained our childhood dream. Our
certified engineer training program allows the volunteer to progress
through brakeman and engineer positions. If you still have any
fascination with the railroad there is a place for you.
Have you ever enjoyed acting? Do you enjoy working with children? Do you enjoy history? Do you have a sense of pride in our area and wish to make a meaningful contribution? For those who don't want to go through the training program for brakeman and engineer there are many volunteer opportunities to work as a conductor. Work with children and enjoy their fun as they participate in the school charter programs. These opportunities are available to those with the desire to participate.
Other opportunities abound in fun and rewarding projects. Volunteers are involved in daily operations of the museum as well as specific projects which need to be accomplished.
Current needs include:
Training sessions for operation of the locomotive will be held the first Saturdays of June, July, August, and September. This is the time to get involved for those that want to learn railroading operations.
