WE COULD DO WITH SOME 'CHUFFING' HELP….
Here at the Tarka Valley Railway, many years work by the dedicated volunteers, has bought the organisation to a point where it is now possible to provide train journeys on the re-laid line.
BUT
This major achievement can only take place if the organisation has a number of trained personnel – who need to work on the trains, lineside and platforms.
We are asking if any of you would enjoy working on the railway as one of these operators – Help us in our next phase to provide some activity on-site, and start to fulfil our operation plans to run trains into Bideford.
It’s not all about the coalface, oily rags and smuts – we can offer you a multitude of jobs that can be ‘off the rails’. You may wish to be a ‘sleeper’ in the visitors centre, a ’fat controller’ on the platform – even a proper train driver; cap and all!

HELP!!!!!!

Join our friendly volunteer community

TVR are looking for trainee Drivers, Driver assistants, Guards, Level Crossing and Signal/Points operatives and Platform welcome staff. If you wish to become involved in the running of our new small but perfectly formed train trips, we would welcome your input!

Full training is provided (indeed necessary)

Our new Visitor Centre also requires welcome staff, sales assistants and helpers during the opening hours - which are currently curtailed, due to a need for more staff. Again we would be most welcoming to you if you would like to get involved.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU.......

Please contact us through any of the channels available on the 'CONTACT' page

Thankyou

TVR
