Texas Traction Company is comprised entirely of volunteers. A few volunteers have worked in this industry; most have not. Some have skills such as electrical, woodworking, upholstery restoration, glass refinishing, or in other specialties such as mechanics or machinists. All of us learn on the job, and a willingness to get your hands dirty is all that's really required.
If you would like to volunteer or find out more, ask any of our volunteers or contact us using our website form. They can tell you about our current projects and find the best fit for your skillset or experience.
We are always in the process of restoring pieces of equipment. Though Tuesday(Burleson) and Thursday(Ft. Worth) are “Volunteer Day”, volunteers can work at any time.
We would like to acknowledge the great number of volunteers who, over the years, have donated a significant amount of time to the restoration and preservation of our equipment and artifacts. Their efforts are critical and essential to our collections.
