Work Weekends

We really need your help to maintain and repair everything at the Railway from the track to the buildings, the gardens to the locomotives and carriages, so we have planned a number of Work Weekends.

Please dress in layers of clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty or ruined, if you have a ‘trade’ please advise us beforehand as we may have a specific requirement for your skills – email info@sklr.net

Due to the current COCID-19 restrictions you will have to be a member to work at the Railway at this time. You can’t just turn up either, you need to book a session so we can ensure we don’t have too many people on site.
