At the Old Dominion Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, we are always looking for volunteers. No matter where your interests lie, we have something that you will enjoy doing. We have a vast amount of archives of Virginia railroading that need to be filed, categorized, and this information relayed to our members, we need the museum staffed, we need volunteers for our excursions, and at our Hallsboro Yard, where we do extensive equipment restoration, track work, and train operations. We have the only working steam locomotive in the state of Virginia at this facility. The best part? No experience is necessary! We will teach you.
