Volunteering and Staff


We would not be able to run the Swanage Railway without our fantastic team of over 400 volunteers, who are responsible for everything from running trains, keeping our stations looking great to selling tickets & refreshments and much, much more.

You might be retired and are looking for ways to stay active and meet new people, or perhaps you’re still in work but want to gain new skills and try something different to the day job. Either way volunteering with us is a great way to contribute to the community and to become involved in something rewarding, social and worthwhile.

Despite what you might think you don’t even need to be a train fanatic to enjoy yourself here. We have a wide range of positions available so a simple smile and a positive attitude is usually a great start!
