Volunteer projects

This page has images of volunteers working at Tyseley, Stratford-on-Avon, representing Tyseley at some other events and some social activities. It also shows some projects that volunteers have been involved with, not all of which require knowledge of the railways of engineering skills – for example, the Tyseley Station adoption relies on volunteers with many skills, including gardening and painting/decorating.

Volunteers working at Tyseley

Some projects that volunteers have been involved in:

  • Clun Castle restoration

  • Tyseley Station Adoption

Vintage Trains adopted Tyseley mainline station from West Midlands Trains in autumn 2019. Vintage Trains and the Friends of Vintage Trains are partnering with local railway companies and the local Community Rail organisation in a project to make the station more welcoming, and also to showcase Vintage Trains and the Friends of Vintage Trains. The longer-term ambition is to gain access to the buildings to refurbish them for future use by Vintage Trains, Friends of Vintage Trains and the local community.
These images show volunteers at work on Tyseley Station and the difference that they are making to the station

  • Supporting the Polar Express

There are many ways in which volunteers can support the Polar Express Christmas trains, for example by sending out tickets and other information to customers
