We are a non-profit educational corporation that is dedicated to educating the public about transportation with an emphasis on railroads. Incorporated in 1970 with ten members, it has grown to have thousands of members.

Under the slogan "Bee Line to Adventure" we have crossed many tracks in our pursuit to discover "New England and Beyond" primarily by train.

ALL ABOARD with the Mystic Valley Volunteers - the activities are as varied as their locations. Auto transportation is essential for some events but many are located on the MBTA Routes and may gather at special locations or at members’ homes. Is distance an impediment? NO WAY for we have had dedicated members in many states and foreign countries who complete their activity via letter or E-Mail. Remember: volunteering allows you to share your talents and interests with those who would benefit most. TO JOIN THE FUN Please request a volunteer form by submitting your request & membership number to: M.V.R.S. c/o Dorothy Dear, Corresponding Secretary, P.O. Box 365486, Hyde Park, MA 02136-0009. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Your request is presented at our regular meeting so that you will be contacted by the appropriate chairperson. From there it is up to you as how involved you wish to be for the level of activity and variety of trips offered by the Society is solely determined by the level of participation supplied by our volunteer members. Welcome Aboard....
