Description

Calling all future potential volunteers...

WE WANT YOU!

We’re seeking new people to join our volunteer family at Puffing Billy Railway. This is purely an open day for you to gain an understanding of what your future volunteering at Puffing Billy can look like.

Puffing Billy Railway has been operating for over 100 years and is predominantly run by our team of dedicated volunteers. Our volunteers are a vital part of the Railway experience giving their time and energy to be a part of Melbourne’s living history.

Our “Behind the Steam” volunteer recruitment day will be an opportunity for you to meet the volunteer family at Puffing Billy. This is a chance to make new friends and learn the importance of our volunteers’ duties. Be sure to speak to our wonderful volunteers, as they will be on hand for you to talk to and answer any questions you have about volunteering.

Who can become a volunteer?

You don’t have to love trains to volunteer at Puffing Billy Railway, there are several diverse roles available from refreshment assistants, to engine cleaners and conductors or even part of the environment team, we are sure there is a role suitable for you. To become a volunteer, candidates must be 18 years or over.

On the day…

  • You will be able to have an exclusive sneak peek of the Menzies Creek Museum which is not open to the public yet. The Museum volunteers will be able to tell you all about the exhibits on display.

  • There will be a locomotive on site (with its’ crew) to show you how we make some steam and what volunteer opportunities are available around the locomotives.

  • There will be some track work and sleeper work on display, including a tamper demonstration from our Way and Works branch.

  • There will be a FREE sausage sizzle and cold drinks available, as well as a chance to win some prizes!
