Volunteers Sought for Railroad Group

The Oregon Coast Historical Railway is looking for volunteers to help out at their popular museum and display area in Coos Bay. No prior railroad experience is needed, just a desire to greet the many enthusiastic visitors who visit this year round attraction. The group also has a number of restoration projects under way, with a particular need for volunteers with carpentry or woodworking skills.

Hours are flexible but one thing is constant – just about everyone loves a train, so this is a fun place to visit and spend some time. If you can help, call Dick Jamsgard at (541)297-6130.
