Meet our Volunteers

Meet our volunteers who help bring the railway to life.

Mike

Guard

“As a guard I’m responsible for the safety of the train and its passengers. It’s great to be part of a team helping to keep the history of island’s railways alive and it keeps me active too.”

Harriet

Booking Office & special events

“I’m often the first person that our visitors meet when they arrive at the railway. I love meeting a wide range of people and making them feel welcome”

Matt

Fireman

“Being a fireman can be hard work – there’s a lot of coal to shovel! However it’s hard to beat the thrill of being on the footplate of one of our historic locomotives”

Brenda

Carriage restoration

“I’m always happy with a paint brush in my hand. I really enjoy learning new skills and volunteering alongside a great team of people”
