Isle of Wight Steam Railway Volunteer Recruitment Day


The Isle of Wight Steam Railway is holding a volunteer recruitment event  on  Sunday 23rd March at 10am in the AV Room at Havenstreet.

From my experiences visiting the Isle of Wight Railway the current volunteers are a great bunch of friendly guys so why not go along, have a chat and find out what’s available. Whether you are interested in driving trains, working in the signal box, restoring locomotives, maintaining coaches or even spending a few hours working in the railway shop there will be something for you at the railway.  I have personally discovered it doesn’t matter if its a couple of hours or a couple of days a week, you will learn so much and get something in return! 

If you have any questions beforehand contact Volunteer Coordinator Alan Gaskin on 01983 529713 or email

Thanks for reading and if you do along we would love to hear your stories as part of our preservation volunteer diaries.
