NORM Seeking Volunteers for 2020

The Northern Ohio Railway Museum is seeking volunteers for its 2020 season.

Volunteers conduct such tasks as painting the equipment; car moving; serving as docents, conductors, motormen; and touring old abandoned trolley lines turned rail-trail.

Those interested should express their interest on the museum’s Facebook page, by calling 330-769-5501, or sending an email to asknorm@northernohiorailwaymuseum.org<asknorm@northernohiorailwaymuseum.org>

The museum is located at 5515 Buffham Road, Seville, Ohio, near Chippewa Lake.

In recent news from the museum, the Youngstown & Southern short line railroad has donated a vintage iron railroad crossbuck to NORM.

The crossbuck has “Railroad Crossing” on one arm and “Look out for the Locomotive” on the other.

The crossbuck will be restored and used at the museum.

NORM also announced that it will offer for sale or trade in 2020 the trucks to former Reading No. 1088. They are now located under the car and will be available to would-be buyers for inspection.

A sister car of this type once operated on the Akron, Canton & Youngstown.
