    I am just wondering if around Bedford or towards Bletchley if Thameslink or WM Railway/London Northwestern do any voluntary positions just to assist with passenger information and other things. I want to do some community work on the railway and wondered what was out there. I know when I lived up north Northern did a station adoption scheme.

    Thanks,

    Your best bet is to contact a preserved railway.

    British Transport Police offer volunteer opportunities or perhaps look at becoming a Rail Pastor?
