Interested in volunteering but not able to make a long-term commitment? We still need you!

The B&O Railroad Museum hosts a handful of fun events throughout the year that attract many visitors. These events are perfect for volunteering with a friend, a child/grandchild (14+ with a parent/guardian), as a group, or to knock out those remaining community service hours before graduation. 

Volunteer assignments for each event vary, but may include: 

  • Greeting and checking in guests 
  • Running the kids craft & activities tables  
  • Facilitating kid activities (yard games, moon bounce, etc.) 
  • Helping direct special photo lines for pictures with the likes of Thomas the Train, Sir Topham Hatt, Santa Claus, and more 
  • Helping guests board and exit trains 
  • Assisting guests at the information desk 

If you’d like to receive information about special events to volunteer at, you can join the volunteer email list here or check back for a sign-up link before the next event.

The roundhouse was my favorite part, because it gives a true feel for what goes on in a roundhouse—the cars are stationary, but seeing the actual tracks is eye-opening.
