Feb 2019 - Site Updated 8th Feb 19

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.

The Christmas period is now over and we hope that you all had a relaxing period spent with your families. Working parties for 2019 have already started, should you wish to become and active volunteer then please contact the membership secrectary 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 edition of the Devonian for 2019 is almost complete and should be available for download from the members' area soon, the hard copy will follow in due course.

The 2019 membership cards should be making their way to you courtesy of Royal Mail, this year being the 30th anniversary of the society we have chosen a suitable photograph for the card, we hope that it is a fitting one. 

The website is slowly being updated to include all 2019 relevant information. 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 thankyou for your continued support in whatever way to the DDS.

The DDS privacy policy is now available for download on the homepage of this site detailing what information our site extracts and retains from your visit, all users are encouraged to read this prior to visiting our site.
