Volunteering

We are an entirely voluntary, not for profit, organisation. We are looking for new members to get involved in the creation of our new miniature railway, whether this be public facing roles such as driving our miniature trains and managing the station on operating days, to backroom staff who maintain our locos and rolling stock, help to lay our track and maintain the station buildings and permanent way.

If you can spare some time we are looking for volunteers in the following areas:

Engineers:
Our engineers operate behind the scenes, ensuring our railway is properly constructed & maintained. We are looking for people to help in all areas, including carpentry, electronics, mechanics, gardening & painting.

Drivers:
We are looking for responsible people to train as drivers of our 7 1/4 gauge locomotives. If you are over 16 and would like to find out more, please get in touch.

Guards:
Our Guards assist the driver in the safe operation of the train

Station Staff:
After being fully trained, you will be responsible for managing the safe running of the station and the flow of passengers, assisting passengers with boarding and disembarking the service, checking tickets and dispatching trains. A responsible volunteer will need to be confident, polite and be able to deal with the general public of all ages, face-to-face.

If you would like to get involved please contact us
