We are the Colebrookdale Railroad Preservation Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to revitalizing The Secret Valley Line and restoring its services to offer the greatest turn-of-the-century railroading experience in the nation.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Colebrookdale Railroad. Quite literally, the train doesn’t roll down the tracks without them.
Our volunteers are:
the source of all accomplishments of our programs
the most critical and unique resource we have
the leaders in our organization
committed long-term with frequent participation
committed to a safe, productive, and cohesive workplace
responsible for our future
Our dedicated family of volunteers does everything from track work, to passenger car restoration, to operations.
If you have what it takes to work on the railroad, contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org! Be sure to include the words, “I Want to Volunteer” in the subject line.
