Welcome to the Severn Valley Railway Volunteer Liaison Office


and finally...

We hope the foregoing pages have illustrated to some extent the areas where vacancies exist for volunteers. Whilst there will be many unanswered questions we hope that we have whetted your appetite

You will note that we have referred, in some instances, to a dresscode. Severn Valley endeavors to maintain a standard of dress in keeping with its endeavors to emulate the railway of the 1950's. Where, for example, a TTI, guard or signalman requires a suit, facilities exist for the supply of two or three piece made to measure suits for which the railway pays one half.

Please remember that The Volunteer Liaison Office is there for your benefit on 01299 401776 or e-mail (vlo@svrlive.com) for any volunteer concern you may have.

Why not come and join us? 

You Will be Made Most Welcome!


Volunteer Staff Passes

Once you have settled in as a volunteer and have been attending reguarly over a period of time(usually six months and/or a minimum number of turns), subject ot your Head of Department's agreement, you will become eligible for a volunteer staff pass. This entitles you, as the holder, to travel without charge on any SVR train during normal service and whilst in the course of your duties. The pass comprises an identity card containing  your photoraph and a separate card, issued yearly, to recognise your status as a current working volunteer. You will be asked to show the pass on occasions. It does not entitle guests to travel  for free or give you unlimited trackside access.
