If you ever had an interest in the "hands-on" operations of trolleys and railroads, here is the golden opportunity to operate our beautifully restored Car No. 10 on weekends and holidays. SFTM offers full training and accreditation programs for individuals interested in becoming a motorman, motorwoman, conductor or pump car operator. You must be at least 16 years old to be a motorman, motorwoman or conductor, and at least 12 years old to be a pump car operator. Go to the Training Page for more information on the training and testing required to operate our equipment.

RESTORATION/SHOP WORK
RESTORATION/SHOP WORK
As a member of our shop crew, you'll work with a project leader to restore and maintain our historic collection of steam and electric equipment, as well as our antique coach, freight cars and caboose. We also have an extensive museum campus of historical buildings in various stages of restoration, plus future plans for a new car barn.

TRACK CREW
TRACK CREW
With a lot of enthusiasm and a little training, you can help maintain our tracks and learn both old and new methods of track reconstruction. We have both scheduleded and unscheduled maintenance programs all year long. Past projects have included moving entire railroad tracks to more simple tasks such as inserting fresh ties and rail. One person can't do it all!

GIFT SHOP PERSONNEL and TICKET AGENT
Greet our visitors and help in our Gift Shop with sales and general information on operating days. You'll always meet somebody new!
