Working sessions take place every weekend and occasionally during the week. An anorak style knowledge of railways is not essential, although a sense of humour would be a wonderful aid!

Our volunteer workforce includes a healthy mixture of young and not so young, male & female - you can be assured of warm welcome, for which the people of the Shropshire-Welsh borderland are renowned.

Tasks currently in hand include:
# Conservation work - incl. clearance of saplings, managing hedgerows and unearthing structures.
# Track work - carrying out repairs to the line, which is fully intact.
# Restoration - re-building the line's Permanent Way huts, formerly used to shelter track maintenance gangs.

Our 'social scene' is centred on The Cambrian social club in Oswestry town centre on Friday & Saturday nights. The club is located on Gobowen Road, opposite the former Cambrian Railways Works (now Maclarens Antiques). Call 01691 679499 for further details.
