Both Chi-Town Union Station and the West Oakland Railroad Museum are wholly dependent upon volunteers to continue their expansion and operation.

The list of volunteer skills and talents needed by one or the other organizations is very lengthy and includes general business operating talents in addition to railroading and model railroading.

Of immediate interest are people in the building trades and architecture, model structure builders, scenery builders, docents and even train engineers. We are also interested in people who can speak publicly about railroading, especially railroading in the past.

If you would like to become one of our volunteers we would urge you to contact Paul Gribbell on the Chi-Town Union Station side, or Seth Lampe for the West Oakland Railroad Museum during your visit.
