At the last count, we have more than 370 events and 470 places of interst listed on steamandelectric.co.uk. Events listed include Steam Galas, Steam Engines Rallies, Running Days, Steam Fairs and for the younger enthusiasts “Days Out with Thomas”. The events are listed under two categories; UK Region and month which are updated regularly. Submit your event here.
We do, however, highly recommend double checking with event organisers or places to visit before setting off -- especially if travelling a long distance. We're not always informed when events are cancelled or if museums are closed for refurbishment. The good old British weather or the wrong leaves on the track often put a stop to events at the very last minute! And on that note, we thank those visitors who advise of cancelled events or museum closures -- you continue to be a great help to us and our many visitors!
Places of interest include Steam Museums, Railway Museums, branch lines like the ones in Llangollen and The Dean Forest Railway. We also list model train exhibitions. There's something for everyone and all contact details and addresses are listed so that you can check opening times and special events that may be taking place. Add your museum by getting in touch here.
We have a gallery section where you can share photos of your favourite engines and places. Just submit your photo with some basic information and we will do the rest. Photographs used will fully credit the original photographers. Throughout the site there are also comment sections where you can leave comments relating to the event or place of interest. We love hearing from you.
