Welcome to the home of the Devon Diesel Society, the site contains the latest news regarding locomotives, rolling stock and forthcoming events. Regular monthly updates will be posted on this site, "Hot off the press" releases between updates can be accessed on either our Twitter or Facebook pages using the links provided on the homepage.

Should you wish to become an active volunteer then please contact the membership secretary through these pages in the first instance and then either Jon Morton or Karl Atkinson once you become a member. A recently introduced policy for the South Devon Railway requires all working members to hold a work permit, volunteers will not be allowed to work if they don't possess one of these, they include your HOPS number etc and application forms are available from the 'white house' located at Buckfastleigh.   

The first beer festival of 2019 will soon be upon us over the latter Bank Holiday in May, usual place and format with over 45 beers on offer and the usual supporting groups. If you are able to advertise this event in your place of work, the poster is available here for download. Further details of the event will be advertised on the events page, Facebook and Twitter accounts once finalised, this will include the WTT, ale list and tasting notes.

Driver experience is selling fast so if you wish to try it yourself, or perhaps, consider it a gift for a loved one then you may need to act fast to avoid disappointment.

All that remains for me is to thank you for your continued support in whatever way to the DDS.
