Society Projects

The Project:

The K1 group are responsible for the general upkeep of the locomotive. They look after winter maintenance and any improvements to its operation.

Volunteering with the K1 Group

The K1 Group of the Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Eryri would be very pleased to meet new volunteers, although with K1 in regular service working parties are normally held at Dinas when K1 is out of use during the Winter period.

Volunteers working on K1 in Dinas Loco Shed

On top of the on-site work there is always scope for 'homework' projects and there are many skills that can be accommodated.

Volunteers will be welcome at the working parties or to help at any of the fundraising events held as part of the Group's activities. For working parties, new volunteers should contact John Startin - Contact information in on the Group's details page.

So what's involved in working on K1? 
Suitable clothing such as overalls & safety boots are essential. A hard hat, safety glasses, work gloves and face mask are quite essential most times.
Be prepared to get very dirty. 
Skills are welcome but far from essential.

Cymdeithas Rheilffordd Eryri is a Registered Charity, №1094938
