Staff Passes

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 to your Head of Department's agreement, you will become eligible for a Volunteer Staff Pass.

The Pass  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 photograph and a separate card, issued yearly, to recognise your status as a current working volunteer. These are issued by the Membership Department at Comberton Place, not by the VLO.

You will be asked to show the pass on occasions, usually when travelling on the trains. It does not entitle guests to travel  for free neither does it give you unlimited trackside access.
