The railway is operated and maintained entirely by volunteers who are members of Bentley Miniature Railway Ltd.
There are openings for volunteers to join both our public facing team and our maintenance team. The operations team typically meet at weekends to operate public services, whilst the majority of maintenance work is undertaken by our Tuesday and Thursday maintenance parties. This can include members working on their own locomotives, conducting maintenance on the rolling stock, or railway infrastructure.
The Railway offers a variety of roles including but not limited to:
- Ticket Sellers
- Platform Staff
- Train Guards
- Locomotive Drivers
- Signalling Staff
- Track Maintenance
- Carriage Maintenance
- Grounds Maintenance
In all cases full training is available to interested parties with no prior experience necessary
The cost of full membership is just £20 per year (concession rate of £10 per year for under 18's)
We do however require that all members must be aged 12 years or older and minors or vulnerable adults must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times
If you would like to join us then we would love to hear from you and arrange for you to visit us and discuss further. In the first instance, please contact us with details of your name and the area that you are most interested in helping.
