    Yes I am an active volunteer
    Once again I'm compiling a list of Special Events for UK preserved lines at http://preservedrailway.weebly.com/whats-on.html. I'll be updating the thread regularly for the next couple of months as more 2018 dates get confirmed, most railways I've contacted so far have said it'll be late November/early December till event dates are confirmed.

    Visit the Whats On Guide Here for more detailed listings including vintage and family events (452 events listed so far).

    Are the summer diesel gala dates correct, 4-6 July is Thursday to Saturday? More likely 5-7th.
