Every year since 1997, volunteers from around the country and overseas have travelled to our Museum in late April and over Columbus Day weekend to help work on numerous projects at the Museum. Our planned projects Friday, April 27th – Sunday, April 29th will include:
• Reconstruction of the Davis Grade main line in the area of mileposts 5.3 and 5.4, originally restored nearly 20 years ago;
• Construction of a two-story outside staircase for the Percival House;
• As well as other smaller projects so our Museum will be ready for the 2018 season!
Of course, visitors are welcome to stop by during the work weekend, watch & see how our railroad is maintained and grows!
Work will start at 7 a.m. and end around 5 p.m. (or a bit earlier Sunday). Delicious lunches and dinners will be provided to volunteers by the Museum.
