Volunteer Open Day

Bodmin & Wenford Railway

Open to the public

Discover the fun of volunteering and learn how we keep this living museum of Railway heritage alive. Join us on Saturday June 1st for our special Volunteer Open Day. Morning and afternoon slots will include a behind the scenes tour, tea and cake and a chance chat to existing volunteers and find out what its all about! Call us on 01208 73555 to book in for the 10.30am or 1.30pm slot. Have you got some spare time on your hands? Looking for a new hobby? Fancy making new friends? Or perhaps you're looking to gain some practical experience before starting or returning to work? Well, volunteering at the Bodmin & Wenford Railway could be for you! We are always keen to hear from anyone, aged 16 and over, who would like to get involved, and no prior experience is necessary. Our volunteers are involved in all aspects of operating the railway, in roles as diverse as: steam and diesel engine drivers, steam engine firemen, signalmen, guards, ticket inspectors, station masters, booking office staff, on-train buffet staff, track and signal maintenance, locomotive repair, coach restoration and maintenance, locomotive cleaning, shop, station and general maintenance – there really is something for everyone! Where necessary, training is provided for what is a really fun and rewarding pastime, so if you would like to find out what is involved, just get in touch or book a place on our Volunteer Open Day. There is no minimum commitment and you are free to attend as often as you wish, but beware… steam railways are addictive! Call 01208 73555 to book your place. We look forward to seeing you there!
