Volunteer Opportunities

Orientation & Training

We provide an orientation for all volunteers. You’ll learn more about the WDM, tour the facility, go through our safety protocols, and learn about our current volunteer opportunities. Contact us about upcoming orientation sessions.

We also provide training for volunteer roles.


Steam Volunteers

Love trains? Become involved with the K+S Potash Canada Short Line 101, the only working steam locomotive in Saskatchewan. Our volunteers work under the direction of the Chief Engineer of the WDM Steam Program.

Engineers:
Our Engineers run and look after our 1914 Vulcan steam locomotive. They are required to have a Limited Power Engineer License from TSASK and to have completed the WDM Training.

Conductors:
Share your love of trains and history with passengers. Like any train, conductors punch tickets and assist passengers on and off the train. Our conductors also help passengers imagine what a trip on a steam locomotive was like for those who first settled on the prairies.


Special Event Volunteers

Volunteers make Museum events possible. Play games, make crafts, lead hands-on heritage demonstrations, supervise parking or any of the many other essential activities.
