I am involved in various aspects of the steam railway out in Swanbank/Ipswich (as of this Sunday we’re actually providing the train service for the Rail Workshops). A lot of the stuff I’ve been doing in the Forge is either from or for railway stuff. I somehow have ended up being responsible for keeping our stretch of track up to scratch and am always in need of willing helpers!
If anyone fancies coming out to play there is some information in the link at the bottom. Most of the work is timber and steel sleeper replacement so straight up manual labour (read: a good workout) but pretty laid back and we often have some plant / on-track vehicles to help.

Give me a shout if you want any more info - there’s plenty of scope to help with other things in the organisation too!
