    Note: Due to the historic nature, the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum’s railroad equipment is not ADA compliant. Safety for our guest and our employees is TVRM’s first priority. Volunteers at TVRM must adhere to TVRM’s stringent safety rules and culture, and must demonstrate the ability to think and act quickly in the best interest of guest and employee safety. TVRM may remove volunteers from service who demonstrate a lack of willingness or ability to support and advance our safety culture.
