The Picnic Train
Volunteer with us
Get out on the rails!
Volunteers are the lifeblood of what we do, supporting the safe and smooth running of our trains and ensuring our passengers have a fantastic day travelling with us.
We welcome volunteers with no previous experience as well as those who can offer specialist skills. Prior qualifications are not necessarily required. Our team is always there to support you and help you learn from experienced volunteers.
If you’re ready to be part of living history – we'd love to have you on board! Come join the team of volunteers that have made the Picnic Train the much-loved attraction it is today.
We're looking for volunteers that are friendly and punctual, with an interest in providing our passengers the best possible experience. If you love working with the public where you will be the smiling start to all sorts of journeys for all kinds of people, then why not join us?
