Museum Restoration

at Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway

RestorationWe need volunteers to assist with the restoration of Ravenglass Railway Museum collections for conservation and display.

By volunteering with us you will develop an understanding of museum collections, in particular locomotives and rolling stock; develop restoration skills particularly in woodwork, metalwork and painting, and gain knowledge and experience.

You will help to restore these vehicles will bring them up to exhibition standard, allowing them to be seen up close by the public for the first time and protect these artefacts for future generations to appreciate.

We welcome anyone who would like to get involved within our museum collection. It doesn't matter what your experience or skills. Whether you can weld or handle a paintbrush, we would welcome your help and training can be provided.
