Then come along to our Open Day at Ludborough station on Sunday 24th March and see the work the volunteers do and find out all about the type of jobs that are on offer.
The running, restoration and maintenance of the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is all carried out by volunteers who are the lifeblood of our organisation. Volunteering gives you the opportunity to meet new people from all walks of life and gain new skills. There is a wide choice of jobs covering every aspect of the railway’s activities.
This is an exciting time for the LWR because we have recently started work on an ambitious plan to extend the line southwards towards Louth. Phase 1 of the project is building the ¾ mile section from Ludborough station to Pear Tree Lane. In 2018 the trackbed was cleared, drainage was installed and now work is underway with laying ballast and the track itself.
We are particularly keen to attract younger people, for whom volunteering can be a rewarding experience. Not only do they learn new skills, they can also demonstrate to prospective employers and others that they have commitment and are willing to give their free time to a cause that they support. At the same time it means we have the people in place to insure that the railway continues to develop in the years to come and is there for future generations to enjoy.
We are holding the Open Day at Ludborough on Sunday 24th March from 11am to 3pm so that people can tour the site and talk to volunteers from different departments about the work we do.
There is a wide choice of roles on offer covering every aspect of the railway’s activities from engine driving, restoration and painting to being a train guard or working in our buffet or shop – the list is endless. You don’t need any special skills but if you have any we will certainly make the most of them!
