Illinois Railway Museum Volunteer Patch

All members are entitled to certain benefits, including unlimited admission to the museum, our excellent Rail & Wire newsletter, and store discounts.  While working, volunteers receive discounts on food and beverages purchased at the Refreshment Stand (enter through rear door).  Volunteers may also be given the opportunity to work on or ride equipment not in public service, or train to become operating crewmembers.  Only active volunteers may be considered for election to regular (voting) membership.

Please note that under Federal tax laws, the value of your time spent as a volunteer is not deductible.  However, out-of-pocket expenses, such as mileage, uniform and equipment purchases, cleaning, and other volunteer-related costs, may be deductible as charitable expenses. Please consult your tax advisor for details on current requirements and regulations.
