Volunteer on the West Somerset Railway

New Project (1)

Come and Join us

Volunteering enquiries and applications are welcomed at any time.  Volunteering is great fun and very rewarding. You will meet new people and learn new skills. We have something for everyone, from driving or guarding a steam train to serving teas, gardening and admin roles.

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Railway is closed at the moment and we have limited facilities available for introducing new volunteers.  However, we are constantly working on alternative ways to help you engage with the railway.  For instance, take a look at the new WSR TV channel

When we do re-open we will need volunteers to help with all aspects of the railway so please complete the enquiry form on this page or email volunteers@wsra.org.uk.  You will receive an acknowledgement and a continuing contact until we are ready to run trains again.

As soon as we are able we will arrange for you to come in and see the railway at work and introduce you to your chosen WSR team.

Thank you for your interest in the West Somerset Railway.
