Volunteer Opportunities Await with the Adirondack Railroad

WELCOME ABOARD! You can be the next person to join our Adirondack Railroad family of volunteers.

This is a very exciting time to join us as we are offering Train and Railbike excursions from Union Station in Utica all the way to Tupper Lake in 2023!

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 car-hosting to gift shop, railbike assistance 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 make new friends while having wonderful experiences while being on board with us.

We welcome new volunteers whether you have as little as an hour a month or several hours a week to donate your time. Please fill out the volunteer application form and join our Adirondack Railroad family of volunteers!
