Volunteer vacancies on the West Somerset Railway

WSRA Vacancies

Database Adviser

The WSRA has a need for someone with database knowledge and skills.  As a fundraising membership organisation we need to store a lot of information in a safe, secure and easily accessible format - in other words a database.  We do have some databases, but they are old and need some TLC.  It may be that someone with the right skills could simply tidy them up, write a few new queries for us and all would be well.  OR perhaps it would be simpler to start afresh.

Do you have the skills to help?  Would you be able to look at our old access databases and advise on the best way forward?

Please contact the WSRA General Manager to discuss how you can help.


Steam Rally Volunteers

The annual Steam Fayre and Vintage Vehicle Rally is our major fundraising event.  This year it will be held on 5th and 6th August. It is a major event in the Steam Rally Calendar and we could not run it without an army of enthusiastic volunteers.

We need  help before, during and after the event with a range of tasks from Marshall and Safety Officer to Barmaid and Programme Seller.  For more information and to download an application form please visit  the dedicated website.

Other WSR Vacancies

Quantock Belle Dining Train volunteers

The WSRA owned Quantock Belle dining train is operated and run by the WSR plc. They are now recruiting for new volunteers for the 2017 season.  Bar, Kitchen and Stewarding staff are all needed.  The work is varied, fun and rewarding and previous catering experience is not essential as full training will be given.

For more information, please contact the Train Manager.
