    It is that time of year where railways start to announce their 2020 events.

    So far I have some events for North Yorkshire Moors and Seven Valley. (Info from the respective steam gala booklets).

    North Yorkshire Moors
    • 4-6 June Diesel Gala
    • 4-5 July 60s Fest
    • 25-27 September Steam Gala
    • 9-11 October Railway in Wartime

    Seven Valley
    • 16-19 April Spring Steam Gala
    • 23-25 May 50th Anniversary of Running

    Is it still 9 days? I thought I read somewhere that idea had been scrapped in the end.

    Bluebell will be holding a series of events in connection with the 60th anniversary, of which the biggest I believe will be 8/9 August, which marks the actual anniversary of when trains started running in 1960.

    Seen it mentioned on the SVR Facebook group, I'm afraid I'm not discerning enough to know who's in the know there and who's thoughts to take with a pinch of salt!

    Anyway, GWSR events for 2020:
    Saturday 25th - Sunday 26th April Wartime in the Cotswolds
    Saturday 23rd - Monday 25th May Cotswold Festival of Steam
    Friday 24th - Sunday 26th July Summer Diesel Gala

    Swanage Railway Diesel Gala and Beer Festival 24th - 26th April 2020.
    These days are normally diesel-only operations.
    Over the last few years there has also been a mixed steam/diesel 'preview day' on the preceding Thursday [if so, next year will be on 23rd April].
