Volunteer Overview

Since 1992, the Adirondack Railway Preservation Society (Adirondack Railroad) has been operated and maintained by volunteers. Our volunteers are what make our excursions exceptional and our nonprofit organization a success. If you have an interest in historic railway preservation, community development, tourism or meeting new people- we have place for you here at the Adirondack Railroad. Our volunteers provide critical support for all aspects of our nonprofit organization and heritage railway. They range from 12 to 90 years of age and are comprised of individuals, couples, families, retirees, railroad workers and more.

These volunteers contribute more than 15,000 volunteer hours annually, doing a variety of jobs, ranging from ticketing to car-hosting or by operating the fleet as part of our hours of service crew. Not only will you be helping by making a difference, but you will learn new skills while being on board with us. If you are interested in keeping this valuable piece of history alive please fill out the volunteer application form and broaden your skills here at the Adirondack Railroad.
