Join the Museum / Volunteer

Support the Chehalis-Centralia¬†Railroad & Museum by becoming a member! By becoming a member, you help to fund the continued preservation and operation of the museum’s historic railroad equipment. In addition, members are the backbone of our museum, providing the bulk of the labor that goes into maintaining and keeping up the collection and grounds as well as our many events.

As a thank-you to members, we provide a series of benefits, including free members’ tickets for excursion rides. Please consider joining today and becoming part of preserving nearly a century of railroad history in Western Washington!


Volunteers are what keep the Museum operating, and are an invaluable part of our organization. If you are a member and would like to volunteer, there are a number of ways you can help out:

  • Car cleaning
  • Landscape maintenance
  • Events help
  • Equipment maintenance and repairs
  • Light maintenance-of-way work
  • Other tasks as needed

Please note that train crew opportunities are available but require significant training and certification. Car host and on-board concessions opportunities, however, do arise on occasion.

For more information on how to volunteer, email us or call 360.748.9593.
