Membership

Silver Stream Railway is run entirely by volunteer members that come from all walks of life, who do everything there is to do in running a railway including: restoring and maintaining our rolling Engine crewstock, track, buildings and grounds, various administrative tasks, and operating the railway for the enjoyment of the public.

Station Master and Guard

Members are spread right throughout New Zealand so distance is no drawback , those who do not live close enough to be actively involved still make a valuable contribution financially to the upkeep of the railway. Main work days are Saturdays, with Wednesdays the day that our senior members, many of whom are retired, work on numerous projects that always need doing.

 

 

Membership benefits include:

  •     the chance to help with the activities at the railway,
  •     free entry and train rides
  •     a regular newsletter that keeps you up to date with the latest happenings
  •     contributing financially with your subscription.

Track work
To operate the railway on a Running day takes a Driver, Fireman, Guard, Station Master and a shop sales person. We are always looking for people to fill these rostered positions, in particular shop sales people, guards and station masters. Full training is given so it does not matter if you are not experienced.

The yearly fee for your membership is $55 and for junior members under 16 is $27.50. We do require in the interests of safety that any member aged under 16 years be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian while on site.
