Volunteer Welcome Days

Volunteers are the backbone of the Mid Hants Railway, without them there would be no trains running, no coaches to sit in, no stations to wait at and no track to run on.  With the exception of 50 paid staff, the railways 450 volunteers do everything from driving the trains to maintaining the station gardens.  From a day per month, to days in a week, hundreds of loyal volunteers take it upon themselves to travel up to 100 miles to help out in one way or another.  Thereís a surprising variety of volunteer roles, itís not all just engineering and locomotives. Whether you have existing skills or you would like to do something totally different, we also have requirements in education, catering, retail, building, carpentry, customer services and even horticulture!
