Using the Events list
This events list is in the public part of the website and should only include events open to the public though admittance may have to be arranged in advance. However, some closed-to-the-public events do creep into this list by mistake so you are advised to check with the organisers before attending. There is also a members only events list in the password protected part of the website.
Please note that most G1MRA events are organised locally and that some Groups have their own websites – See Groups for further information
Please observe the protocol: Spectators are not to get in the way of drivers of trains and drivers should not obstruct the tracks when stopping. (see Standards and Guidance).
For G1MRA run exhibitions, but not Get-Togethers unless specifically requested, please take the current boiler certificate for each live steam loco you wish to run (see Standards and Guidance).
