Volunteering / Membership

What we do, and why you should consider joining us.

We are a not-for-profit society and the railway is run solely by a group of dedicated volunteers all year. If you have skills that can be put to use then great, if not then don't worry there are plenty of ways to learn. We will be more than happy to teach you skills that will be with you for life. Volunteering gives a unique opportunity to work with like-minded people and make friendships that can last a lifetime.

We are always looking for more volunteers who would like to get involved. Whether you wish to be a Driver, Guard, Platform Duties, Signalman, Engineering or just help with the maintenance, you will be working alongside a friendly group of volunteers sharing the same experience.
