Operations Department - Station Staff & Station Foreman - Stephenson Steam Railway

Station staff are the friendly face of the railway; meeting and greeting passengers, checking tickets and helping people onto the train.

Station staff ensure the safe departure of trains by checking all the doors are locked and secure before signalling to the guard when it is safe for the train to depart.

Sunday and times during holidays.


No training is required to become a member of station staff, however, new volunteers in this role will spend a day or two working with the guard or a station foreman before taking on the role alone.

After passing out as a guard, station staff become station foreman - leading the team of station staff rostered that day.
