Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the volunteer team on the Fairbourne Railway.

The Fairbourne Railway thrives as a busy seaside railway. It relies greatly on a volunteer workforce to enable it to operate in its current form.

You can be a part of this by becoming an active volunteer, driving, guarding in the workshop, trackwork/permanent way, building maintenance, model railway and Booking/ Office/Gift Shop. You do not need specific skills as training will be given in your chosen area. Minimum age for active volunteers is 16 (14 with direct supervision from a parent).

In return for your commitment you will gain additional skills, an insight into railway operating and a real sense of achievement and belonging.

INTERESTED? Please contact Murray Dods the Railway Manager who will only be too pleased to introduce you to the Railway, and a suitable starting point in your chosen railway career.
