Join our team

The Severn Valley Railway couldn’t operate without YOU and we have so many opportunities for you to get involved. We are always in need of more help; from operating the train service, to station and maintenance staff, through to guarding, driving, engineering or assisting in shops and gardening. We have so much to offer!

Get involved as a volunteer and create memories to last a lifetime! If you want to be involved with the day to day running of the Severn Valley Railway – from the P-Way team and driving and firing locos to using your expertise to help our full time staff – there’s something for everyone.

You must become a SVR member and be prepared to spare us some of your time, whether it be for just a few days each year or on a more regular basis.

Full training will be given where required.

Retired, or just want a new leisure interest? Why not get in touch now? You won’t regret it!

Give us a little of your spare time, meet new friends, enjoy yourself and learn new skills whilst helping us run the Severn Valley Railway.
