Become a New Member today!

Why become a New Member:

The Railway has around 850 Members and Supporters and by joining today your subscription helps keep the Railway looking forward to a vibrant and confident future.

As a Member you gain certain privileges (see below) and you also have the opportunity to become a working Volunteer - further details will be sent to you when you join.

We need booking clerks, cafe and shop staff, guards, firemen, steam and diesel drivers, track workers, carpenters, electricians, builders, IT experts, on-train stewards, marketing people, admin types and lots more besides.

If you have a skill already we can probably make use of that, or come along and learn something different. We have volunteers from 14 - 94 and volunteering on the Railway enables individuals to come together to learn new skills and make new friends.

As we continue to extend services from Chinnor towards Princes Risborough and look into the possibilities of going to Aston Rowant, then more volunteers of every description are always going to be needed...
