Volunteers Make It All Happen
Track and overhead lines work, restoration projects, museum and railway operations, the continuous development of our archives -- Nearly all activity at the Western Railway Museum is carried out by dedicated volunteers. Won't you consider joining us in the new year? Volunteers are needed in all departments. No experience is necessary and we will provide all necessary training. All you need to bring is a willingness to work with a friendly, welcoming and passionate group of people!
