Do you enjoy trains?

People who can operate model HO-scale or G-scale train layouts with multiple tracks and trains and perform simple train maintenance are needed for all shifts, including weeknights and weekends.

Experience with model trains is preferred but not required. Train operators must attend training prior to operating the trains. Contact the Train Coordinator for more information about the training date and time.

Train Operators must be 16 or older or accompanied by an adult and have the permission of the Train Coordinator. A Parent Release Form is required for volunteers under 18.

In addition, a special daytime crew is needed for 4 school visit days and Senior Citizens & Veterans’ Day the first full week of December.

It is important for all train operators to be familiar with the following:
