Blow the whistle! Drive the train! A big attraction for visitors are the two Railways on the site.

You can read about the railways here. As a Hidden Railway volunteer you will be showing off the site and keeping alive an important link to the industrial railway that once ran here  - as a train driver, guard or station master.  Bring your practical skills and your passion for helping visitors appreciate what railways are all about. 

Hidden Railway

You can learn to be the driver or guard of the train for when we are open to the public, or work behind the scenes on railway carriages, tracks and engines. You can bring your trade skills or basic DIY skills as well as enthusiasm for being part of the team.

Mini Railway

Welcome and assist visitors as they approach the station, be the whistle blowing 'Station Master', assist passengers on and off the carriages, drive the trains and help setting up and shutting down each day.
