Volunteer Opportunities:

With trains running on three-quarters of the days of the year, recruitment of new volunteers in all departments is an ongoing project, and there are details here of how you could help us as a volunteer.

Our Locomotive Works is looking for volunteers

The locomotive workshop is open 7 days per week, and is seeking skilled engineers and machinists to join the team to carry out the maintenance, overhaul and repair of the railway's historic collection of steam locomotives.

Volunteers must have either completed an engineering apprenticeship or have other equivalent qualifications. Skills essential for this post include machining and fitting mechanical parts with demonstrable competence in the use of manual operated lathes and milling machines.

In addition the Locomotive Works also require non-skilled personnel for general duties, who are just as important to the department.

Please contact Chris Shepherd by e-mail.
