Around 60,000 passengers travel with us at our leading heritage attraction in Cornwall each year. The dedicated engineering team based in our Bodmin General workshop are responsible for keeping our fleet on track to transport all those visitors. Could you be just the person we need to help us meet a demanding schedule of maintenance, working on our fleet of heritage steam and diesel locomotives, coaches, wagons and plant?
Reporting to the Chief Mechanical Engineer, the main focus of this role will be responsibility for bodywork and structural repairs to our fleet of ex British Railways Mark 1 coaches, and the overhaul and repair of their associated running gear.
We need someone skilled in the use of welding and fabrication equipment, with a thorough understanding of general workshop practice. You’ll also need a working knowledge of machine shop tooling, enabling you to use basic machine shop equipment to produce components in support of your role. Full training will be given in specialist aspects of your work relating to rail fleet restoration.
This is a permanent, full time role, with salary dependent on experience. The person we’re looking for will be self-motivated and able to work alone, as well as working alongside our existing engineers. As part of a small team, you should also expect to be asked to carry out other duties within the workshop, and to assist in railway operations. We need someone happy to work flexibly to meet the needs of our heritage attraction.
