Keeping the age of steam alive!

Help keep our railway on the move!

Come along to our Open Day on Sunday 15th March and see the work our volunteers do and the type of jobs that are on offer.

This is an exciting time for the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway because we have started work on an ambitious plan to extend the line southwards towards Louth. In October this year we will also be commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the closure of our line in 1970 and we are looking to recruit more volunteers to help at the extra events that will be taking place throughout the season.

The running, restoration and maintenance of our railway are all carried out by volunteers who are the lifeblood of our organisation. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to meet new people from all walks of life and gain new skills.

We are particularly keen to attract younger people, for whom volunteering can be a rewarding experience. Not only do they learn new skills, they can also demonstrate to prospective employers and others that they have commitment and are willing to give their free time to a cause that they support.

There is a wide choice of roles on offer covering every aspect of the railway’s activities from engine driving, restoration and painting to being a train guard or working in our buffet or shop – the list is endless. We are also looking for help ‘behind the scenes’, from people with IT and administrative skills who could assist with organising our growing events programme.
