Volunteers are the lifeblood who make it possible for CMR to achieve success in establishing a preeminent heritage railway destination. Volunteers currently assist at the Cooma Railway Precinct on Tuesdays and Wednesday, plus on Saturdays 9 am to 1 pm.

We have all manner of work that needs doing. Be it track maintenance, rollingstock restoration and maintenance, publicity, museum curating, safety management or general duties such as painting and carpentry, your volunteer assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Please contact CMR at to become a volunteer.

Esther digs-in to help excavate the Waiting Room underfloor so that proper ventilation can be achieved for the replacement floorboards, joists and bearers. The Waiting Room has now been restored to a wonderful standard, thanks to the contributions of CMR volunteers.
