Learn. Teach. Socialize. 


We rely on people like you who volunteer their valuable time to help us meet our goals. We welcome volunteers with any level of railroading expertise - from none to expert. Let us know your talents and they will be put to use to help complete planned projects and provide ongoing support.

To learn more about ORHS, feel free to attend our regular membership meetings which are held at 6:00 PM on the first Tuesday of each month at the Orrville Union Depot located at 145 Depot Street, Orrville, Ohio 44667.

Volunteers receive the quarterly All Aboard newsletter, training where appropriate, gift shop discounts, and are acknowledged at recognition events. Also, volunteers become a part of a friendly group of people with the shared interests and in interpreting and preserving Orrville's and Ohio’s railroading heritage.

Things you can do, to name a few:



Sales and Marketing

Diesel Locomotive Service
