Scruton Station Neds You!

Plans to reopen the Wensleydale Railway from Bedale to Scruton via Leeming Bar are becoming clear and we need a lot more volunteers!

The plan is to have 6 trains a day and we need volunteers as meeters-and-greeters at Scruton on Wednesdays & weekends from the late Spring Bank Holiday through June and July in half-day or whole-day shifts.

Volunteering will not involve role play, but you will be encouraged to wear costumes appropriate to 1910, some of which can be provided, or you may prefer to wear your own. You will need to give information about Scruton Station and direct passengers to other nearby attractions as described in a visitors’ leaflet. No experience is necessary and training will be given including Personal Rail Safety.

This is an exciting new proposal to get the railway back on track (forgive the pun) and should be great fun! For more information contact Keith and Joan Walker on 748 458 or email  or Janet Crampton on 748 321 or email
