Volunteering is a great way to use a skill you already have or gain a new one. At Steam Incorporated we are always looking for rail enthusiasts to volunteer to help in the various roles we have. From Depot maintenance such as track work, landscaping and building restoration to work on our locomotives and rolling stock such as engineering, carriage building, cleaning and electrical work.

Steam Incorporated also requires volunteers on our excursions for roles such as locomotive servicing crew, excursion management, hospitality and customer service.

Our Depot is usually open from Monday to Saturday. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or would like more information on volunteer positions with us, please contact one of our volunteer liaison officers listed below or email secretary@steaminc.org.nz
