The North Tyneside Steam Railway Association was formed in 1977 as a volunteer support organisation for the North Tyneside Railway. The voluntary work offers participants the chance to lovingly restore locomotives and carriages, and the opportunity to enjoy making new friends. No experience is necessary and a policy of continuous crew and staff training is operated and volunteers for any of these posts are very welcome. Junior members who wish to become actively involved in the restoration and/or train operations must be at least 16 years old and have parental consent.
