Since our founding in 1984, the BSRM has been staffed entirely by volunteers. BSRM is powered by the dedication, commitment and enthusiasm of our volunteer members. 

There are ample volunteer opportunities at the BSRM for all skill levels and interests. We are a unique organization - part museum, part small business, part working railroad. Our ability to contribute to the cultural economy of the Berkshires is entirely dependent on the contributions of our volunteer leadership and staff. Here are some examples of volunteer opportunities: 


  • Administration (finance, marketing, communication/media, special event planning, etc.) 

  • Maintenance & Restoration (carpentry, mechanics, painting, electrical, landscaping, etc.)

  • Guest Services (ticket agents, docents)

  • Train Crew (Conductors, Engineers, Coach Attendants)


If you are interested in contributing to a growing and unique organization please contact us by clicking here. Based on your individual interests, skills and availability, we will find an opportunity with the BSRM that you will find rewarding and provide a great value to the community.
