Volunteering & membership

We are eager to attract as many volunteers as possible, young, old, male, female, experienced or inexperienced; it is on them that the success of the railway depends. Opportunities for volunteers include:

  • Track laying and maintenance
  • Coach building
  • Locomotive maintenance
  • Building work
  • Ticket office
  • Refreshments
  • Guard and Station Master
  • Gardening
