The Rochester & Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is entirely staffed by unpaid volunteers, and always welcomes new members to help us preserve Rochester’s rich railroading heritage. From maintaining our fleet of historic trains, to keeping our buildings and grounds in top condition, to hosting and operating our train rides, to developing marketing plans and grant applications, there‚Äôs something for every interest and skill level. Training is also available for our fleet of heavy machinery and tools. If you’ve ever dreamed of working on the railroad, here’s your chance! Volunteers age 16 and older with valid driver’s license are welcome. Contact us to get started!
