As well as working on the footplate of locomotives, volunteers are needed in the railway’s infrastructure and motive-power departments to assist with building, electrical and mechanical work.
Opportunities are also available to help with the maintenance, repairs and overhaul of the railway’s fleet of steam and diesel locomotives.
Other volunteer roles include ticket inspectors, signalling and telecommunications, customer service, retail, catering, fundraising and education.
Volunteers play such an important role that Marcus Aldrich was appointed the head of volunteer development in 2020.
He said: “Volunteers are the lifeblood of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway. ”
