The Railway is kept alive by its Volunteers, all of whom are members of the Kent & East Sussex Railway, a registered educational charity.

We always welcome new members: the only qualification to join us is a desire to help keep the Railway going. You can join us below. If you'd like to consider volunteering, even just one day a month will help us immensely and you can be assured of a warm welcome!
