Volunteers

The St. Marys Railroad Museum is operated by member volunteers, and there are limitless opportunities for people with all kinds of backgrounds and skill sets to help out. In addition to train crews who operate and maintain the trains and rail, administrators, artists, carpenters, curators, docents, researchers, gardeners, storytellers, and hosts are needed. If you don’t have any of these skills but want to learn, we can train you. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, email John Gantz, Curator, at gantzj@yahoo.com.
