Volunteering and Working Weekends


There are a number of ways to support our project in addition to becoming a member and being a Shareholder, perhaps you are able to spare some of your time to assist us either at our working weekends or be part of our engineering team. Or you might wish to assist us with our sales and publicity stand at various railway galas and events to raise awareness of our project, raise funds through sales of our merchandise and recruitment of new members / contributors to the project. If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity please contact our  volunteer liaison officer here  

Working Weekends & Sales Stands

We aim to hold at least one working party weekend a month in co-operation with our friends at  the Swindon & Cricklade Railway.  We also have our sales stand present at a numbr of events throughout the year.

As always with our working weekends, no experience is necessary just enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved. If you are interested please contact our contact our volunteer liaison officer here  for a volunteer form to fill out.
