Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad Surpasses One Million Volunteer Hours

Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is pleased to announce that we have surpassed one million volunteer hours during the first quarter of 2018 for a total of 1,00,065 hours since 1999, when records are available.

train one million volunteer hoursThis is a major achievement as our volunteers are an integral role in many excursions and ensuring passengers have enjoyable rides.

“We are excited to acknowledge this major accomplishment by our volunteers,” says Joe Mazur, president of CVSR.  “Volunteers generously give their time to make our events and programs run smoothly. They are our greatest asset and we are extremely appreciative of their contributions. Without their constant support and dedication, we would not be able to run the many events that have made CVSR a destination for visitors in Northeast Ohio and beyond.”

With over 1,800 volunteers, they serve in a variety of roles from trainmen, conductors, brakemen, engineers and maintenance workers at the train-yard. They also take part in exciting special event excursions offered each year such as Day Out With Thomas and The Polar Express™.

There are plenty of ways to get involved at CVSR and volunteer. To register, complete an online volunteer application. Orientation for new volunteers is scheduled on July 17 and other dates throughout the year. For more information visit our volunteer page or call 234-759-0091.
