2 foot gauge volunteer

We are always happy to welcome new volunteers to Amberley, not just on the railway but generally.
Ideally new volunteers should already be 2 foot gauge, like the one illustrated, but our workshop
facilities have the means to regauge suitable candidates if necessary - even from standard gauge!

Contact information is given at the foot of this page.
