Volunteers are the life-blood of our organization and make running the railway museum possible. We provide volunteers for all of the station and train operating positions. And, of course, we provide training in railroad operations via a progression through the various positions. But best of all, we have fun!

The museum could use your assistance by volunteering for the following positions on our staff:

Boulder City, NV, NV State Railroad Museum, Hoover Dam, Union Pacific, Nv Southern Railway
