A POPULAR heritage railway is searching for the next generation of volunteers to help run the service.
The North Yorks Moors Railway is hoping to recruit on its 40th Anniversary Volunteer Day – the first of many events this year to mark the occasion.
John Bruce, volunteer liaison officer, said “Over the past forty years, volunteers have continued to be deeply involved in developing and improving the NYMR.
“We have a very proud, professional volunteer family on the railway and we need more people to be a part of this.
“Our 40th Anniversary Volunteer day is a great chance to discover all the great ways you can volunteer on the Railway.”
People with no railway experience can also get involved.
Mr Bruce added: “We need volunteers with a vast multitude of skills, if you have the aptitude, enthusiasm and commitment, we will help you achieve your ambition to become a driver or fireman, a guard or a signalman.”
The NYMR also needs people who can help maintain infrastructure; run tea rooms; in customer service; IT and communications and finance.

The event is on platform two, Pickering Station, at 10am on Sunday, April 21.
