    No I do not currently volunteer
    I have been trying to join this railway as a life member for the last month
    However despite emailing twice, phoning and using the contact form on their website have still not received an application form
    They don't seem to be bothered!
    Has anyone else had similar problems??

    When I visited the place about 12 months ago, things appeared pretty dire. Are they still functioning?

    No I do not currently volunteer
    Finally received membership forms and sent off for life membership two and a half weeks ago
    Again have heard nothing despite sending emails
    I am beginning to wish I hadn't got involved as its been a stressful experience
    Why won't they contact me to tell me what's going on??
    Once more a poor advert for anyone trying to help this railway

    I will visit Rushden next time in the area and hopefully will have more joy!
