Ever fancied getting involved? Come and experience the sounds, smells and atmosphere of a real steam railway. Try your hand at being a guard or crossing keeper, operate our historic signal box under supervision and ride on our steam locos. Our team of friendly volunteers will be on hand to have a chat about what YOU could do.

There's lots to do. gardening, general maintenance, electrical work, operating the mini-rail as well as railway-related duties and helping out at events. Full training is given and, importantly, our team of volunteers is made up of men and women, ranging in age from 18yrs to 75yrs! Come and have a chat with Team Wednesday or Team Thursday who meet on those days of the week to do all sorts of jobs and maintenance work around the site.

It doesn't matter how much or how little time you can offer and theres lots of variety one day you might be dead-heading or potting up some flowers, then serving drinks in our miniature pub, The Viaduct, on an event day and another day could be spent checking tickets, looking after our visitors or operating the signal box on a Day out with Thomas.
