Have you ever wanted to be a part of an operational Railway? Ever wondered what it feels like to be in control of a real train or you just love to get your hands dirty working on machinery. Perhaps you don't want to be in the lime light and just wish to be a part of the background team working towards achieving the Society's visions and objectives so to become a reality? If you just feel you have something to offer or want to learn new skills in a variety of different areas, consider becoming a member of the Mornington Railway Preservation Society, the group who are preserving the history of a great Railway on the Peninsula.
Volunteers of the Mornington Railway perform tasks covering many skill sets to keep the trains on track - some of the roles may include; Station Master: This role is on a running day to ensure every position on the day is running smoothly as required.

Booking Clerk: is generally one of the first people the customers experience when arriving to travel. Duties including ensuring the passenger have the correct tickets for the journey about to be taken. We have many other important roles that are needed to ensure the railway meets operational standards, including many other day-to-day tasks of which are shown in the photographs below. Some further examples of these are: Steam & Diesel locomotive crews, train guards, rolling stock maintenance crews, ways and works track maintenance team and many more.
