Thank you for inquiring about volunteer opportunities with Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad. We are delighted to hear of your interest and hope you will consider joining us.
Enjoy a unique opportunity that combines the love and nostalgia for the railroad with the reward of helping provide an opportunity for thousands of people to ride the rails, visit Cuyahoga Valley National Park and enjoy the heritage of the area.
CVSR is one of the premier scenic railroads in the United States – running through the heart of the great Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Currently stretching from Independence, Ohio to Canton, our route parallels the beautiful towpath and canal route, and is planned for expansion all the way to Cleveland. Together with the National Park Service, we provide entertainment, education and fun for over 185,000 passengers annually.
Our volunteers are a critical part of our success, and serve in jobs ranging from concessionaire to engineer. As a CVSR volunteer, you will be a part of exciting Northeast Ohio events like Day Out With Thomas and Polar Express. Through on-the-job training you’ll learn about the railroad system, schedules, safety and sign up procedures.
Once we receive your application, you’ll be contacted by one of our volunteers to arrange for an official Orientation. These are held on an as needed basis at the Fitzwater Yard. Once your application is accepted you are welcome to join us at our monthly Volunteer Meetings which are held at 7:00 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at the Days Inn, 4742 Brecksville Road (Rte. 21), Richfield, Oh 44286. You’ll have the chance to meet many of our volunteers and hear the latest on what’s happening.
We are looking forward to having you aboard – and please don’t hesitate to call 800-468-4070, ext 226, if you have questions or need additional information.
