The Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is staffed entirely by volunteers and we are always looking for interested people who can spare some time to help.
The running, restoration and maintenance of the railway are all carried out by volunteers at LWR. They are the lifeblood of our organisation.
Volunteering gives you the opportunity to meet new people from all walks of life and gain new skills. There is a wide choice of jobs covering every aspect of the railway’s activities.
On working days (mainly Tuesdays and Saturdays) we need personnel in the Permanent Way, Maintenance and Engineering Departments.
On running days (when we are open to the public) we always want help in the Buffet, Shop, Museum, Ticket Office and on the Platform. Various jobs including Guards, Ticket Inspectors, Signalmen and Train Crew are also available after training.
Whenever you want to lend a hand we look forward to welcoming you!
