With an enviable fleet of main-line diesels, we are well-established, open, inclusive and friendly. Our team owns, maintains and operates locomotives, from an entirely volunteer workforce. Our fleet mainly features diesels historically connected with the area, one steeped in proud mining history.

 

We actively encourage new members and volunteers to get involved with the maintenance and operation of our growing fleet and the railway in general.Check-out the "Volunteer" link above for details.
