Volunteers Needed

TrainWeb has a lot of information, photographs and links of interest to the rail community that has not yet been posted online. We need volunteers to help sort, process and post this information to TrainWeb.

Some of the volunteer tasks can be done by people at their own homes. Other volunteer tasks require people that can come into our office for a few hours each week. Our office is located upstairs in the Fullerton Amtrak Station (with windows that overlook the station platforms and tracks). We will be moving into this new office on September 2, 1997.

Below you will find two lists of available volunteer assignments. One is of tasks that can be done at your home and the other is of assignments that need to be done at our office. If you would like to volunteer for any of these positions, send e-mail to me at: steve@trainweb.com. If you would like to volunteer, but are not interested in any of the assignments listed below, still send me e-mail. I'll let you know as other needs arise and you can review each one to see if you are interested. Let me know if you are interested in working from home or at our office.

Note: These are UNPAID volunteer positions. The tasks involve helping TrainWeb provide information of value to the rail hobby and travel community and will not involve any work on our commercial pursuits. Although the position is unpaid, TrainWeb can provide you with a free web account on our server that you may use for almost any legal non-commercial purpose.

Here is a list of the current volunteer assignments available that can be done from your home (or from our office):

  • New and updated web addresses of other railroad related web sites are submitted to TrainWeb daily. We need someone to check, sort and post these links to TrainWeb. A basic knowledge of HTML or web page design would be helpful, but is not mandatory.

Here is a list of the current volunteer assignments available that need to be done from our office in Fullerton, California:

  • We have well over 3,000 photographs in the TrainWeb database. We are months behind posting these photographs to the web. We need someone to come into our office to prepare and post these photographs. Preparation involves using PhotoWorksPlus to convert the photos to a 100% JPG file, a 50% JPG file, and a 10% JPG thumbnail file. An HTML file then needs to be made that integrates the photos with text labels that describe each photo. Experience with creating HTML web pages would be very helpful, but expert knowledge of HTML is not necessary.

If you are interested in any of the above volunteer positions, please send e-mail to me at: steve@trainweb.com. Be sure to specify which position you are interested in. I'll be looking forward to your e-mail!
