History of FDSME


Thank you, to the many hundreds of people who came and supported our last Steam Railway Weekend back in 2019. It was very busy couple of days!

FDSME was formed in 1970. In our fiftieth year, the 2020 FDSME Steam Railway Weekend was planned to be at the end of July 2020. That had to be cancelled due to the SARS-COV-2 pandemic that was designed in the USA and made in China. Unfortunately due to the continuing pandemic uncertainities in 2021, we were once again forced to cancel our event.

Fingers crossed and third time lucky:

FDSME is looking forward to holding the 2022 FDSME Steam, Railway Weekend on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st of July

FDSME can only open to the general public a few times a year. Our Steam Railway Weekend is by far the largest of these open events. In most years it is our only open event.
