100% volunteer-run!

Each month we will feature one of our friendly volunteers on this page!


This month we feature Linda, a Guard and Station Master at our railway! 

My name is Linda and I have been volunteering at Blaenavon’s Heritage Railway for five years.


In this time I have trained to become both a Guard and a Station Master. The volunteers immediately made me feel welcome and happily helped me with all the necessary training.


I have made many friends at the railway, both amongst the other volunteers and our regular visitors, and it is always a pleasure to welcome new visitors from across the world to Blaenavon! Many are intrigued by our railway and its rich history, and they are always delighted to see our steam engines still running. This makes it all worthwhile for me!

Lastly, I'd love to thank all our visitors and members for supporting the work

we do!
