Details

Have you ever wondered about volunteering on the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways? Have you ever thought about guarding trains, firing locomotives or working on the track? You don't need previous experience or special skills, as full training will be given. This could be the dream you never thought would come true!

After the success of our event last year we are holding a two-day “Give It a Try” weekend on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd April when we will take you behind the scenes, show you what you can do and to answer all of your questions. There will be something that appeals to everyone and if you are not sure, we will let you have a go.

Boston Lodge Workshops will be open to show you how you can become involved in working with our historic locos or building new carriages. In Minffordd, we will show how you can join our Infrastructure department working on the track, with signalling, maintaining our heritage buildings, gardening and much more. We will then whisk you away on a train to show you our operating and on train services staff in action.

You will discover our volunteers' hostel, the great social life, the constant stream of new projects and the fun and satisfaction of making a real contribution to Britain’s most historic and innovative railways.
