The Victorian Goldfields Railway’s Civil team maintain the railway’s permanent way and associated infrastructure.

We’re a team of volunteers of around 20 people and one full time Ganger.

A team of us head out every Thursday and Friday, working on anything from re-sleepering to re-railing to operating works trains to repairing trestle bridges! We also have Saturday workdays so keep an eye on the blog for details of those.

If you’d like to try your hand at trackwork and and would like to help in maintaining a working railway we would love to have you out on the team – we’re always looking for more help and there is always something, any day of the week – no previous experience or skills required!

Please contact us at: The Contact Page if would like to become involved.

This Blog gives you an insight into the kind of jobs and tasks that we tackle.
