Make new friends, learn new skills. Chasewater Railway is run by working members who are all Volunteers. If you find yourself with time on your hands, why not join our friendly team? With hours to suit, as little or as much time as you want to give, can make a real difference. With opportunities to work in different departments; Operations – footplate (steam & diesel) crews, Carriage and Wagon, Museum, Shops, Station Staff, Train Crews (Guard and Travelling Ticket Inspector), Maintenance and Restorations of Rolling Stock, Permanent Way (track), Narrow Gauge, Model Railway and Events. Previous experience is not necessary as full training will be provided, we are always looking to welcome new Volunteers. Whatever your skills and experience, working, retired or studying, there’s something for you at Chasewater Railway
The Museum is open to visitors on most Sundays and at other times by prior arrangement.
The aim is to open on every running day but over the last few years our numbers have diminished due to members sadly passing away and illness.
We are really looking for mature members no longer able. perhaps , to do the heavy lifting associated with railways but still having a lot to offer, with local knowledge and railway matters in general.
There is a fair amount of paperwork involved, our catalogue is kept on a computer database, help would be appreciated.
There is an excellent video about the Chasewater Railway Volunteers in various departments on youtube,
unfortunately, I can’t put a llnk on here, the link has been disabled by the video owner.
