All the work at the Railway is carried out by Volunteer Members of the RVRSA.
We are an extremely friendly group and are on site every Sunday and the occasional Wednesday (please check prior to setting off). The work is currently being undertaken by a group of regular volunteers who have achieved nothing less than a minor miracle in transforming the site to the stage where operations are now firmly within sight.
It is fair to say that the Railway is at what is probably the most exciting period of its development since the Association was formed.
Why not consider joining the team? Come down, have a look around, if you like what you see and can feel you can help, we want you.
You don't need to be an expert on Railways, but if you are, great!
We don't expect you to commit all your free time to the railway, but be warned, it can be infectious....
More Generally the work on site varies from:
working within the shop to track laying

- gardening / landscaping
even Legal and Surveying skills would be welcome
Nothing is obligatory and all hands are welcome. “It’s a Great Place to Learn”
