HVRM Volunteers with Bock Lumber No. 1

Volunteer Here

The Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson, Indiana, is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to preserving the vibrant history of railroading in northwest Indiana.

Formed in 1988, our museum has worked diligently to build its collection of locomotives, rolling stock, wayside signals, historic photos, buildings, and more. We have made incredible progress with a small group of individuals who have dedicated considerable time and effort to achieve our goals.

To maintain momentum, we are actively seeking new volunteers who can attend our regular Saturday work sessions. We need help in all areas and we are willing to train those who are interested in working with a team.

There is always a need for talented volunteers around the museum:

  • Gift Shop Clerks
  • Ticket Agents
  • Car Hosts
  • Train Operations (Engineers, Conductors, and Brakeman)
  • Buildings & Grounds Maintenance
  • Locomotive Mechanics
  • Rolling Stock Restoration
  • Event Coordinators
  • Signal Maintainers
  • Track Maintenance
  • and much more!
