I have had an interest in Railways for as long as I can remember. I am a member of a number of heritage railways and actively volunteer at 2 of them. I enjoy all types of railways, real life, model and simulations. I started RailAdvent in 2014 and am the main editor of the site.
  • A lot of good info arrives too late- eg what’s happening (happened) this Saturday, so I missed Duchess of Sutherland in Plymouth and will miss Clun Castle in Oxford. Oh well …
    Thank you for what you do anyway.

  • I totally agree. Very much appreciate the information but it often arrives too late to arrange viewings. Any chance of earlier updates please?
