As well as working on the footplate of locomotives, volunteers are needed in the railway’s infrastructure and motive-power departments to assist with building, electrical and mechanical work.

Opportunities are also available to help with the maintenance, repairs and overhaul of the railway’s fleet of steam and diesel locomotives.
