In the Members Area, there are the latest Newsletters for Summer 2017 which includes further details on all our locomotives and the latest Summer 2017 Devonian available for download. 

It has just been brought to our attention that due to a printing error a few copies of the Devonian are missing 4 pages, should yours be one of these we would be grateful if you could raise the issue here.

A note from the chair regarding the recent Rails & Ales festival.

We have reached the end of what was the most successful Rails and Ales to date. We were only able to achieve this with the help and support of the South Devon Railway, our members and our loyal customers and friends. 
THANK YOU.
We will now be able to carry on with the restoration of D402, the return to service of 6737, maintaining D2246 and our other vehicles. We ended the day with only 30 pints of beer remaining.

See you in November for the SDR Diesel Gala with the added attraction of the visiting Class 17 Clayton.
