North Tyneside Steam Railway Association (NTSRA)
Formerly the Monkwearmouth Station Museum Association, the NTSRA was formed in the late 1980s at the Stephenson Railway Museum. The association is managed by a committee that meets quarterly and has an Annual General Meeting.
The association exists to provide a volunteer workforce to assist with the maintenance and conservation of locomotives and rolling stock. During the spring through to the autumn the volunteers operate the steam train service from Museum to Percy Main, approximately a four mile round trip. Duties include Drivers for both steam and diesel locomotives, Fireman, Guard, Shunter and Operations Controller, all of which are vital for the successful and safe running of the railway.
New volunteers are always welcome, training will be given on the technical aspects of running trains and in personal and passenger safety. Some of our volunteers have engineering skills; however, just as important, are organisational and administrative skills.
If you decide to join us you'll find a variety of jobs that need doing and something to suit everyone.
Family member: £14.50
Concessions and Juniors: £4.50
