The East Somerset Railway is on a recruitment drive; we need more volunteers to help run the Railway.

The East Somerset Railway is a registered charity whose aims are to preserve and run steam trains through the Mendips.  To do this we rely heavily on a volunteer workforce who carry out every job on the railway from lighting up the steam engines in the early morning to selling tickets, Guarding Trains, painting fences, weeding and serving tea in the popular Whistlestop Restaurant.  In August, our busiest month, over 1900 man/woman hours are needed just to run trains.  That doesn’t include all the hours of maintenance and restoration that are required to ensure the railway continues to thrive.

We are looking for anyone, young or not so young, who can give up some time to help us out.  It can be one day a month or even a year.  There are always jobs to be done.  Some jobs require training such as Guard and Footplate Crew, which we will provide.  For the jobs in which we provide training all we ask is a regular commitment of a minimum of one day a month in order to keep your skills current.
