Meet The Volunteers
All of the staff at the Railway are volunteers with varying skills. There is something for everyone and with suitable training you can become a Guard, Stationmaster or a train driver! There is always a need for people prepared to get involved with track maintenance and other significant works but there are also important customer facing roles as well.
You don’t need to be a mechanic to enjoy the fun of running the railway. There are various roles and skills that all contribute to keeping the railway operating smoothly and in good order such as,
Customer facing – Station master, ticket office, guard and train driver
Various practical skills such as carpentry, painting, metal work, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, welding, gardening etc.
All of which you can train to do and of course hopefully enjoying yourself in the process.
