Volunteers provide support to the Birmingham Railway Museum Trust subsidiaries i.e. Tyseley Locomotive Works, the Visitor Centre and Vintage Trains.

Volunteers must be members of Vintage Trains Society.

There are number of ways that volunteers can provide support covering a wide range of activities.

Please note that all volunteers are welcome, and we will endeavour to match their aspirations with the opportunities available. However it must be understood that for the operational activities, individuals will need to undergo appropriate supervised training and assessment of suitability. There may be very limited requirements for more volunteers for some operational activities.

Some Volunteer Areas

Some of these are mentioned in the list here....

  • Locomotive and rolling stock restoration
  • Mainline activities e.g. train stewards, sales stand, buffet service, ticket checking
