We are a volunteer-run railway – can you help us?

We are a volunteer – run railway, and you can join us in a huge range of opportunities … We are able to “train” you into any of them!

If you’re looking for paid work eventually, we could give you good references as you help us whilst networking for your future                      (a little bird tells us that volunteering gives you a great thing to talk about at interview).


Are you good with people? It’s great to meet so many interesting people from around the world – and we’re in just the right place to do it! If you’re interested in retail  and would like to help visitors with their purchases of tickets & gifts – sell tickets to our visitors?

Could you help on the trains and load bikes?  For this you need to be fit and enjoy meeting people.

Are you good with your hands – wood work, metal work, painting, etc – join our team in the workshop?

Fancy getting out on the track – track workers needed. Is this you?

Are you a car driver? If so, you’ve a head start to being a diesel engine driver. You need to be fit to climb aboard these engines.

Are you mechanically minded? Help under the bonnet of our diesels.
