Friends of Swedish Railway Museum helps the museum in its efforts to care for, preserve and develop the unique historical railway collections. Members can be active or supporting, for example by participating in the renovation of various railway exhibits, guided tours and other volunteer efforts. The association also has a section called Gävle Model Railway (Gävle modelljärnväg). There, members build model railways in H0 scale.
