Meet Some Of Our Dedicated Volunteers

Volunteers at Cleethorpes


Volunteer since 2018

"I've made new friends and it has boosted my confidence. Having always been a fan of railways since I was a little lad, now working on one is a childhood dream come true."

Volunteer since 2017

"The railway is my second home - it has helped me with self-confidence, people and mechanical skills. I most enjoy working in the sheds, helping maintain the railway, but guarding also allows me to meet visitors which is really fufilling."

Our volunteers play a crucial role in looking after our visitors, maintaining locomotives, carriages, stations and track, and operating the railway safely.

Whilst many of our volunteers have an interest in railways, others get involved because they enjoy meeting our visitors and working alongside other volunteers.

Some of our volunteers have retired from full-time work and are seeking new ways to keep active and use their skills. Other spend time at the Railway at weekends or during holiday periods, and enjoy doing something completely different to their day job. 

The range of roles vary greatly and include:

  • Gardening

  • General maintenance

  • Operations and more.
