The Astoria Riverfront Trolley Association is looking for a few good volunteer conductors, motormen and motorwomen. A conductor class is 6 p.m. Oct. 5, at the trolley barn. To get on the list, call the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce at 325-6311.

Conductors collect fares, talk with passengers and narrate the ride on Old 300, the Astoria Riverfront Trolley, as it travels along the waterfront tracks.

Motormen are trained to be conductors and then receive additional training to be certified as trolley operators. Conductors and motormen sign up for three-hour shifts of their own choosing and volunteer as often as they like.

To become a motorman, candidates must have attended a conductor training class and then gone on to attend a motorman class. Additional training time is required onboard Old 300 to become a certified motorman.

This is a chance to learn about Astoria and the Columbia River, meet new people and become an ambassador for the city.
