The Trams would run all day but we need people to run them.

All the workers at the tramway are volunteers.

Would you like to join us?

We have a team who maintain the working and fabric of the venture. They meet, usually on Tuesdays, to undertake the many maintenance tasks which are necessary to keep the tramway running.

We also have a larger number of volunteers who fulfil all the tasks necessary to give visitors an enjoyable and safe experience at the times the tramway is open.

They staff the ticket offices and they stock and staff the shop.

They make sure that all passengers are safe during their trip on the tram and they drive the tram.

They make sure that  each weekend, there is a roster of staff to cover all the positions.

They man and maintain the museum and carry out research and are planning to offer Educational Resources to Schools and similar groups.

They organise publicity and give presentations to various groups.

Our treasurer manages the finances.

We are all determined to preserve the tramway into the future.
