The Day
  • Displays and curiosities about the railway and the work our volunteers do
  • Chat to our volunteers about their hobby
  • Tours around Wirksworth Station and Yard
  • Take our service train between Wirksworth and Duffield - discounted fare of £5.00 return for visitors who wish to volunteer (by joining the EVRA)

Volunteering can be very rewarding. The amount of time you put in is really up to you but the more you put in the more you will get out. There's a great social base in all departments and many of the tasks are enjoyable and even fun! See our Volunteering page for full details on working for our railway.

About this Event

Start your new hobby today! Our railway is continually growing and we need your help. All departments on the railway rely on the hard work and dedication of volunteers to continue to operate. From driving to trackwork and guarding to restoration work, there are many different roles which need to be filled. Our current volunteers will be on hand to chat to about various different roles and give personal accounts of their involvement. Without our volunteers, the railway could not operate.
